The New York State Department of Transportation announced construction is resuming on the project to reconstruct the interchange of the Robert Moses Parkway with John B. Daly Boulevard in the City of Niagara Falls.
As a result, beginning Thursday, April 21, a portion of the Upper River Trail in Niagara Falls State Park, between the Old Stone Chimney and Fourth Street, will be closed for approximately four to six weeks to allow for construction activities.
Bicyclists and other trail users are advised to seek alternate routes, and to follow all traffic laws governing the use of highways for non-motorized use.
NYSDOT also announced lane closures and a temporary shutdown of a portion of Interstate 190 in the Town of Lewiston is scheduled to occur on Friday, April 22, to allow for the removal of an overhead sign structure.
From approximately 6-8 a.m., Interstate 190 northbound, in the vicinity of Upper Mountain Road and the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge will be reduced to one lane, and a temporary traffic stop will occur lasting for approximately 15 minutes in duration.
Motorists should expect delays and should allow for additional travel time.
Motorists are also reminded fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone. In accordance with the Work Zone Safety Act of 2005, convictions of two or more speeding violations in a work zone could result in the suspension of an individual's driver's license.
