The Town of Lockport is preparing to undertake Phase I of the Transit Road Site Improvement Program.
In the Fall of 2013, the Town will proceed with the planting of ornamental trees and perennial flowers in the area beginning north of the intersection of South Transit Road and Robinson Road, and extending to the vicinity of South Transit Road and Ruhlmann Road. Flower beds will be located on both the east and west sides of NY 78, primarily within the existing public rights of way.
The Transit Road Streetscaping Program has been designed in order to upgrade the appearance and attractiveness of Lockport’s Transit Road Corridor. Additionally, the improvements will promote traffic calming and a decrease in traffic and pedestrian accidents. Combined with the future phases of the program, the completed Transit Road Streetscaping Program will raise awareness that traffic is arriving at a destination.
Based on the availability of State and Federal funds, subsequent phases of this project may consist of construction of a highway median with landscaping and decorative lighting on South Transit Road from Robinson Road to Ruhlmann Road, and signage at the intersection of Transit and Robinson Roads. The Town of Lockport is applying in August for $400,000 in federal funds through the Transportation Enhancement Program; if approved, this grant would enable the Town to construct two ‘gateway’ signs at South Transit and Robinson Roads and a 360’ median, beginning at a point approximately 240’ north of the Transit/Robinson intersection, continuing to the vicinity of the Lockport Outdoor Store/Faery’s Farm Market.
