Press Release, NYS Department of Transportation

The New York State Department of Transportation announced it will close the two-lane bridge over Oak Orchard Creek along Route 18 in the Town of Carlton beginning Monday, March 19. The closure is anticipated to last two to four weeks.

Work on the bridge will consist of repairing concrete, replacing a joint header, and installing a new layer of concrete on the bridge deck to maintain a smooth riding surface.

The Lake Ontario State Parkway between Route 98 and Lakeside Beach State Park will re-open temporarily to accommodate traffic as a detour during the bridge repairs. Commercial vehicles will use the same detour.

Repairs to the Route 18 bridge over Oak Orchard Creek are being made well ahead of the busy summer tourism season. The bridge is currently posted at 28 tons.
