ARG Bridge Work on North Kendall Starts Monday

Work to replace a bridge at American Refining Group Inc. (ARG) will intermittently delay traffic along North Kendall Avenue between 6 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday.

The span to be installed will reach 140 feet across the Tuna Creek to the refinery’s new railcar-loading rack at the Erie Wye on the Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad, just north of the Kendall Avenue bridge. The new bridge will support the piping necessary to service the loading rack and will allow personnel to cross in order to perform daily functions there.

Traffic could be stopped for as long as 5 to 10 minutes at a time. Arrangements have been made to have extra staff on hand for safety and to control traffic during the project.

Motorists should plan to avoid North Kendall Avenue on Monday unless absolutely necessary. Any impact to school buses and emergency vehicles will be minimized as much as possible.
