Press Release, NYS Department of Transportation

CARLTON – The New York State Department of Transportation is advising motorists that, as of this morning, the bridge carrying Route 18 over Oak Orchard Creek in the Town of Carlton is now open to two lanes of traffic.

Last week traffic was reduced to a one-way alternating pattern using a signal at each end of the bridge. Work began last Friday, and bridge maintenance crews worked throughout the weekend to restore traffic over the bridge to two lanes.

The stretch of Lake Ontario State Parkway west of Route 98, which was previously closed for the winter, temporarily re-opened to provide a detour. That stretch of Parkway has closed once again and is anticipated to re-open this spring.
