Niagara County Department of Public Works Commissioner Garret Meal on Monday announced the pending closing of Lockport Road, just east of Walmore Road. Electronic message boards were erected Monday, warning travelers the road is scheduled to be closed, except for local traffic, beginning on Monday, June 21. Motorists will need to follow the detour route from Ward Road to Niagara Falls Boulevard to Walmore Road.
The DPW will be replacing a large culvert under Lockport Road at Cayuga Creek. The existing deteriorated steel culvert will be replaced with a precast concrete structure. The road is scheduled to be reopened on Sept. 2.
“Lockport Road is a major east-west connector across Niagara County, so we understand the inconvenience to motorists, but we ask for everyone’s patience as we complete this important project,” Meal said.
