Section of Parkway will close for winter beginning today

By Tom Rivers, Editor Posted 14 November 2016 at 9:01 am

CARLTON – A 2-mile section of the western end of the Lake Ontario State Parkway will be closed, beginning today, for the winter.

The State Department of Transportation notified local officials of the move, which the DOT has done in recent years to save on de-icing materials, equipment and repairs to damaged pavement.

The 2-mile section is between Lakeside Beach State Park and Route 98 in the Town of Carlton. The highway will re-opened in the spring as weather allows, the DOT said.

About 800 cars travel this section every day and likely even less in the winter, the DOT said.

The Parkway already prohibits commercial truck traffic. Motorists will be directed to use Route 18 as a detour route.
