Water levels drop on Cazenovia Creek, Stevenson Street Bridge reopens

The Stevenson Street Bridge in South Buffalo has been reopened after authorities determined that high water on Cazenovia Creek is receding, a Buffalo Fire dispatcher confirmed early Friday.

The fire dispatcher said shortly after midnight that the go-ahead to reopen the bridge was given by Don Polito, a city engineer, after it was observed that the water level had dropped by 3 feet. The bridge had been closed as a precaution early Thursday evening.

Meanwhile, the National Weather Service canceled a flood watch for most of Western New York that previously had been posted through 4 p.m. Friday. The arrival of colder, drier air will reduce the chance of thawing and rainfall that prompted the watch.

Forecasters say there is a slight possibility of snow showers around midday and temperatures are expected to fall to the mid 20s by sundown.
