Roadwork Starts on Walnut -Ferry Corridor; Motorists May Encounter Delays

April 08, 2014

Motorists may encounter closed travel lanes and flaggers directing traffic and should expect travel delays, as roadwork begins this week on U. S. Route 62, at Walnut, and Ferry, in Niagara Falls.

The existing asphalt pavement will be milled off and new asphalt will be overlaid on Walnut Avenue between Main Street and Hyde Park Blvd., and on Ferry Ave. between 2nd Street and Packard Rd..

Traffic signal loop detectors that are impacted will be replaced and pavement markings will be restored. New traffic signs will be installed and approximately 200 drainage inlets throughout the Walnut-Ferry corridor will be repaired.

The new pavement surface is expected to provide a smoother, safer riding surface.

"Preventative maintenance work will better preserve the state's infrastructure and guard against the need for more costly, in-depth construction," said DOT Regional Director Darrell Kaminski. "We ask motorists to be patient and drive carefully through the work zone as construction begins."

The contract was awarded to Concrete Applied Technologies Corporation (CATCO) of Alden. Cost: $1.8 million.

Work is expected to be completed by the end of summer.
