FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MASSENA — The New York Power Authority will be
installing new rip-rap on the river side of some dikes that are part of the
St. Lawrence-Franklin D. Roosevelt Power
Work is expected to begin this week on the Richards
Landing Dike just west of the Massena Town Beach. About 25 to 30 trucks a
day are expected to operate during the daylight hours, Monday through
Friday. The trail that leads onto the Richards Landing Dike will be closed
for the remainder of the year. It will reopen in the spring, but will again
be closed when work on the dike resumes next summer.
Work is also expected to begin on the Long Sault Dike
later this year.
In total, the work on the dikes will be underway during
late summer and early fall for the next three years.
