ALBION – Crews from the Village of Albion Department of Public Works work on a section of Route 98, just north of the Main Street lift bridge, this morning.

The village is working this week to restore the road which had to be torn up in January after a water main leak.

With the road closed for the repair, the state Canal Corp. is using it as an opportunity for maintenance on the bridge, keeping it in the upright position so boats can pass through.

The bridge is expected to be closed to traffic for approximately five days.During the closure, vehicular traffic will be detoured using East State Street, Ingersoll and Caroline Streets.
