Niagara Bottling Driveway Improvements Tabled

Improvements are part of Niagara's $40 million expansion plan.

tabled a request from Niagra Bottling concerning a rear driveway expansion aimed at making room for trucks to maneuver better around the plant located at 7561 Industrial Drive.

Niagara plant manager Charles Congdon called the driveway improvements "critical to our ($40 million) improvement plan."

Planners weren't convinced that truck access and traffic outside the Industrial Drive plant would improve with the wider driveway.

Planners also weren't convinced that traffic plans that engineers presented during a Power Point presentation would ensure trucks would make right turns only onto Route 100.

Engineers said peak truck traffic is 315 to 410 trucks per day at the plant, which now employs 220 to 230 employees.

Niagara engineers will have to return to the planning commission to resubmit their plans.
