New York

US 219 enters Western New York from Pennsylvania south of the Village of Limestone in the Town of Carrollton in Cattaraugus County. Proceeding northward, the highway crosses the Allegheny River and the Southern Tier Expressway (Interstate 86/New York State Route 17) and joins New York State Route 417 to the City of Salamanca. Separating from NY 417, US 219 turns northward through the rest of Cattaraugus County, passing through Peth, Great Valley, Ellicottville, and Ashford Hollow before crossing the Cattaraugus Creek and entering Erie County. At Springville, New York, US 219 becomes a divided, limited-access highway. As such, it continues north through half of the county, terminating at exit 55 of the New York State Thruway (Interstate 90) near the west town line of West Seneca south of the City of Buffalo. Before joining the Thruway, US 219 runs parallel to it for about one mile.

Plans are in place to extend the US 219 expressway from Springville to Salamanca, a distance of about 28 miles. The freeway alternative was selected and therefore will provide quick and efficient access once complete, from Buffalo to Interstate 86. Currently, the US 219 freeway terminates at New York State Route 39. It ends abruptly, as barriers in the middle of the road at the south end of the highway force traffic to merge onto a single lane exit ramp leading to NY 39. From the exit ramp, one can see the extension for it to continue to be a highway.[1] Nickname: City of Good Neighbors, Queen City, City of Light Location of Buffalo in New York State County Erie County  - Mayor Byron Brown Area    - City 136. ... {{{type3}}} JUNCTIONS JUNCTION EXIT # I-90 PA 1 I-390 NY 146 (36) I-99 NY 169 (44) I-81 NY 245 NY (75) I-84 NY 362 (121) I-87 NY Legend BROWSE STATE HWYS Prev Next {{{browse}}} Interstate 86 runs from an intersection with Interstate 90 in Erie...
