BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Michigan Avenue bridge is set to be closed for the next 3-4 months for work on it, authorities said.

Work is scheduled to be conducted on the sub-part of the bridge, which they say has to be done during the summer months due to water and weather. The closures will cut off the main route to the Riverworks area with many summer events coming up.

Signage for detours will go up before work begins at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, May 30. It will look like this:

South Park Ave –> Louisiana Street –> Ohio Street lift bridge –> Ganson Street

In all, the City of Buffalo says this will be an $800,000 project with federal, state and local funding from the Transportation Improvement Program.
