Transit Road/Route 78 in the Village of Depew will be the focus of construction beginning this month by the state Department of Transportation.

Work begins Monday on a culvert and bridge rehabilitation project that will result in intermittent lane closures, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., between George Urban Boulevard and French Road.

Beginning July 15, there will be only one lane of traffic in each direction. In addition, access to and from Columbia and Olmstead avenues will be closed to all traffic.

The lane and access closures will be in place for four to six weeks.

Motorists should expect delays and are advised to seek alternate routes.
