The Eastbound lane of the Thruway is closed between Utica and Westmoreland.

Forecasters say heavy snow squalls and high winds are expected on Sunday afternoon, causing difficult driving conditions, and possible poor visibility.
Drivers should also be aware that eastbound traffic from the Thruway is being detoured between Westmoreland and Utica's Thruway exits, making for increased traffic that includes all points between the two exits.
