Lockport announces sidewalk construction plans

LOCKPORT – Work is to begin April 6 on installing new sidewalks near several Lockport public schools, Town of Lockport engineer Robert D. Klavoon announced Thursday.

The work, funded by the state Safe Routes to School program, is to be carried out by Roman Construction Development Corp. of Pendleton. The Town Board awarded the company a $447,816 contract on Dec. 29, Klavoon said, with the grant covering $342,000 of the cost.

Sites will include East High Street, Corinthia Street, Locust Street Extension and Hi-Point Drive, although work on the last location will involve school property only.

At the other sites, concrete sidewalks will be poured across residents’ driveways, Klavoon wrote in a letter to affected residents. They won’t be allowed to drive across the new concrete for three days. Klavoon said the contractor will provide written notice to each property owner of when the work at each home will be done.

The target date for completion of the project is Aug. 1.
