City of Lockport issued the following announcement on Oct. 31.
Weekly Construction Update
D Construction started installing watermain on the south side of 9th Street, working east towards Hamilton Street. Following installation, the main will be tested and chlorinated so that the contractor can continue installation of water services.
Framing for the gravity wall caps has started on the east side of the 900 block of State State. The caps are being poured this week. Following installation of the gravity wall caps, pedestrian traffic will be moved to the face of the buildings on State, and the contractor will begin installation of the parking bay curb and asphalt. Electric and streetscape work will follow installation of the parking bay.
