In Sanborn, Shenk Road entrance to be closed for three weeks

SANBORN – The state Department of Transportation announced Thursday that there will be no access from Route 31 to Shenk Road in Sanborn for about three weeks, beginning Monday.

The reason is an ongoing project to replace box culverts along Route 31 near Niagara County Community College, the DOT said.

Route 31, Saunders Settlement Road, will be reduced to one lane, with the direction of traffic alternating with the use of temporary signals. The DOT said drivers should allow extra time or avoid the area if possible. It also reminded drivers that fines are doubled for speeding in a work zone.
