CARLTON – The bridge on Route 18 over Oak Orchard River has been limited to one lane since March 9, when the state Department of Transportation started repairing the truss. That work is expected to conclude this week, and crews will then mobilize to work on the Main Street lift bridge in Albion next week, DOT spokeswoman Lori Maher said.

By keeping the Carlton bridge at one lane, the DOT avoided having to detour traffic while the repairs were made, she said.
