Niagara County Announces Closure of Lockport Road from Ward to Walmore, Travel Shutdown Lasting June 21st – September 2nd

NIAGARA COUNTY – Department of Public Works (DPW) Commissioner Garret Meal today announced the pending closing of Lockport Road, just east of Walmore Road.  Electronic message boards will be erected Monday June 14 warning travelers that the road is scheduled to be closed, except for local traffic, beginning on Monday, June 21. Motorists will need to follow the detour route from Ward Road to Niagara Falls Blvd. to Walmore Road. 

DPW will be replacing a very large culvert under Lockport Road at Cayuga Creek.  The existing deteriorated steel culvert will be replaced with a precast concrete structure.  The road is scheduled to be reopened on September 2, 2021. 

“Lockport Road is a major east-west connector across Niagara County so we understand the inconvenience to motorists, but we ask for everyone’s patience as we complete this important project,” said Meal.
