If your weekday commute includes Niagara Falls Blvd. in Amherst they is some construction you need to be aware of.

The right lane between I-290 and Tonawanda Creek Rd. going northbound will be closed starting (today) Tuesday.

Originally, the work was supposed to start on yesterday....

“We are awaiting confirmation on an underground utility location in the project limits,” Chris Schregel, with the Town of Amherst, says. “This requires test hole exploration before the town’s contractor can begin work.”

Crews will be installing light poles and underground utilities in this area of Niagara Falls Boulevard which has been the site of numerous accidents involving pedestrians.

Work is expected to last a number of months and traffic delays should be expected.
