Niagara Power Project Work To
Alter Parkway Traffic
March 14, 2005
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LEWISTON—New York Power Authority officials, preparing
to continue 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 on Wednesday, March 16, 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 October this year and from
April through October in 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.
