KENDALL — The westbound lanes of the Lake Ontario State Parkway in Kendall will close for about a month after Memorial Day, the New York State Department of Transportation today announced.

The closure is necessary to accommodate repairs being made to the Lake Ontario shoreline, just north of the parkway, by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation.

Westbound traffic along the parkway will be detoured at the Route 237 exit and use Route 18 to continue west.

The road is expected to re-open to vehicular traffic by the end of June, though work is weather dependent and subject to change.

For real-time travel information, motorists are advised to call 511 or visit or the mobile site at, New York state’s official traffic and travel information source.
