LEWISTON—A stretch of Lewiston Road (New York State Route 104) passing over the New York Power Authority’s Niagara Power Project will be closed for a 48 hour period between Oct. 1 and Oct. 3 for remedial maintenance work.

The construction work will cause a temporary closure of the two inside median lanes (one north bound, one south bound) of Lewiston Road, traversing the power plant and in the immediate vicinity. The balance of traffic lanes will remain open.
