A power line has been blown down onto Glenridge Road in the high wind, police said. Police are only allowing traffic to use one lane, making the morning commute longer than usual for many motorists.
Traffic is backed up and police are advising drivers to find other routes.
Also, there was a three-car accident with no injuries on Balltown Road at about 8:40 a.m., Niskayuna police said.
The accident is near Consaul Road and police said they believed the cars had been moved to the shoulder to allow very busy traffic to get past them.
