WHEATFIELD – Lockport Road between Nash and Hoover roads in Wheatfield is slated to be closed as of 7 a.m. Thursday, said Michael F. Tracy, Niagara County deputy public works commissioner for highways.

The reason is the removal of a grade-level bridge over Bergholtz Creek, about 200 feet east of Hoover Road, and its replacement by a pre-cast concrete culvert.

Tracy said the work is intended to be complete before school starts next month. About 50 to 60 feet of pavement will be torn up during the project, he said.
