IF YOU ARE TRAVELING TO BARKER GOING THROUGH GASPORT: For anyone who uses Gasport Road and comes through Gasport, the bridge over the canal is out and therefore a detour around Gasport is necessary. If coming from Lockport or further south a detour from Gasport Road to 31 west and then a right turn onto Orangeport Road to head north is a suggestion. Please plan accordingly. The signs do not show when the bridge will be available. It's been out since August 22nd.
