Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Center Street in Lewiston will be closed for several hours today, so people heading to Artpark for high school graduations may want to leave earlier than planned.
The Niagara County Sheriff’s Office reports that Center Street will be closed between Fourth and Eighth streets from 7 a.m. until about noon for the funeral for Youngstown Firefighter Thomas Burley.
Representatives from several fire departments are expected to attend and the sheriff’s office urges drivers to use caution and be prepared for possible traffic delays in the area.
Drivers heading to Artpark via Ridge Road and the Robert Moses Parkway may want to turn left onto South Ninth Street, then right onto Cayuga Street. Follow Cayuga Street to Fourth Street and turn left to reach Artpark.
Two local high schools have graduation ceremonies at Artpark today. Wilson High School’s graduation is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. and Lockport High School’s commencement begins at 1 p.m.
