DOT will bid Walnut, Ferry contract in June

Repaving work for Ferry and Walnut avenues will go to bid in June, the state Department of Transportation said late last week.

The project, slated to cover the roadways from Main Street to Packard Road, will include the repair of about 200 drainage inlets and the installation of signal loop detection at various intersections.

The roads were originally constructed in the 1960s, agency spokeswoman Susan Surdej said, with a 2-inch asphalt overlay added in 1987, with another resurfacing done in 1999.

The grade of the road at several manhole covers will be changed, and the agency notified the Niagara Falls Water Board of the work in case it wanted to buy new manhole covers or make any other repairs to the manholes, Surdej said.
