Traffic will be restricted beginning Wednesday for bridge projects in Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties, the state Department of Transportation reports.
Route 394 in the Town of Busti, Chautauqua County, will be reduced to one lane while work is done on a $1.1 million project on the bridge over Unnamed Stream, just west of Route 474. Work will be finished in September.
In Allegany, Cattaraugus County, the South First Street Bridge over the Allegheny River also will be reduced to a single lane for a $1.2 million project which will continue until November. L.C. Whitford Co. of Wellsville is contractor for both projects.
Temporary traffic signals will be installed at each end of the bridges to allow alternating traffic in each direction.
