Work to begin on Niagara Power Project bridges

Tom Muscarella is Chairman of the 2009 Taste of Buffalo. We caught up with him tending to any one of a thousand details he will tackle during this long weekend. Believe it or not, his day job is with the Erie County Health Department as Senior Public Health Sanitarian. Seems like the right man for this mission!

LEWISTON, N.Y. (WIVB) – Work will begin next week on the I-190 and Military Road bridges over the Niagara Power Project in Lewiston.

The NYS Department of Transportation says beginning Monday, January 27 motorists should expect the right lane to be closed on the I-190 South near the power project. And beginning Friday, January 31 motorists should expect a lane closure on Military Road near the power project from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m. The road will be down to one lane controlled by flaggers.

The DOT says motorists should expect delays and are reminded that fines are doubled for speeding through a work zone. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
