Travel advisory to be lifted

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — The Lockport city-wide travel advisory will be lifted at 6 p.m. Monday, Mayor Michael Tucker announced.

The advisory against driving in the city was issued early Sunday after an ice storm struck, downing trees and utility infrastructure throughout the city.

Most streets are cleared of debris and are passble again, Tucker said Monday afternoon. All streets will have been cleared by 6 p.m.

In midafternoon Monday, NYSE&G reported that 181 customers remained without power, mostly along Market Street, Lakeview Parkway and DeSales Circle. The power company projected service will be restored to all properties by midnight.

To help deal with storm damage, NYSE&G called in 27 trucks, including several wood chipper trucks, from outside New York State, according to Tucker.
