If you drive 490 West between the exits of Route 531 and Buffalo Road in Gates, you will notice something different Monday morning.

The Department of Transportation says the left lane in that area will be closed beginning at 7 a.m. and it will stay closed through the summer.

Crews will put a concrete barrier down the center of the highway in that area. There are two bridge replacement projects planned. The one to replace the bridge over Chili Center Coldwater Road begins in April and is expected to wrap in August.

490 Westbound will also be reduced to one lane near the Route 204 overpass. The bridge is set to be replaced this summer.
