Where we live: Clarence


A section of Goodrich Road is expected to remain closed through mid-September during replacement of the bridge crossing Black Creek.

The road is closed between Lapp and Tonawanda Creek roads. Detours are posted.

Work on the bridge, which was built in 1936, precedes a $3 million reconstruction of the road itself. The latter project, to be funded entirely with Erie County Capital Improvement Project funds, will involve widening the pavement and relocating ditches away from the pavement’s edge.

This week:

• Clarence Summer Orchestra will perform “Hits from the Oscars” at 7 p.m. today in Town Park, 10405 Main St. Featured soloists will be violinist Amy Schroder and Luke Fleming on viola. There also will be a community reception in the Town Park Clubhouse.
