Niagara County Department of Public Works Commissioner Garret Meal on Monday announced Carmen Road, between Ridge and Seaman roads in the Town of Hartland, will reopen to traffic by the close of business Nov. 15.
The road has been closed since April to allow DPW to replace a bridge on Carmen Road that goes over Johnson Creek. The bridge had already been reduced to one lane for over a year due to an advanced state of deterioration. The federally funded project had a construction cost of approximately $1.6 million.
“I am excited to see the bridge fully reopen to traffic, and want to the public to know that we very much appreciated their patience with traffic being rerouted while we completed this project,” Meal said.
