Niagara Power Project Work to
Alter Parkway Traffic
June 10, 2004
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LEWISTON – New York Power Authority officials,
preparing to begin a $13 million refurbishment of the concrete face of
the Robert Moses Niagara Power Plant, have announced a new traffic
pattern on the Robert Moses Parkway during the repair work.
Beginning at noon on Tuesday, June 15, southbound
Parkway traffic will be diverted to the westernmost lane of the
northbound Parkway segment. The diversion will occur north of the Moses
Power Plant in the Village of Lewiston near the Center Street
entrance/exit ramps. The new traffic pattern will be clearly marked.
Work on the power plant will occur through November
this year and from April through November in 2005 and 2006. The Parkway
diversion will be in effect during the time the work is being performed.
The work will entail repair and, in some cases
replacement, of the concrete facing of the power plant. Support vehicles
for the work will be located in the southbound Parkway lane closest to
the work area. The hiking trail that currently occupies that lane will
be shifted eastward into what has been the southbound automobile lane.
