Open house set for Tuesday, Jan. 31, at Lockport Town Hall
The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) will host a public information meeting from 4-6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 31. The session pertains to a proposed intersection improvement project scheduled to begin in spring 2024 on state Route 104 (Ridge Road), at state Route 93 (Townline Road) – commonly referred to as Warrens Corners – in the towns of Lockport and Cambria.
The informal, open house meeting will be held at Lockport Town Hall, located at 6560 Dysinger Road. It will feature displays about the project, and provide an opportunity for discussion with NYSDOT representatives, who will be available to receive comments and answer individual questions. No formal presentation will be made.
NYSDOT said the purpose of the project is to realign Town Line Road to the west at the intersection of Ridge Road to eliminate the offset approach. Ridge Road would be widened to add a dedicated left-turn lane for westbound traffic, and Town Line Road would be widened to add a dedicated right-turn lane. A new, three-color traffic signal would be installed at the intersection.
The project proposes to close Old Beebe Road at the intersection with Ridge Road and construct a cul-de-sac. The slip ramp for Ridge Road eastbound to Stone Road would be eliminated, and Stone Road would be realigned to the south at the intersection of Town Line Road to eliminate the offset approach. Roadside ditches and drainage pipes would be reestablished.
