Erie County Legislator Lynne Dixon announces that the 2014 Road Project List released today includes funding to repave Sowles Road in Hamburg. Having advocated for repairs to the deteriorating roadway for several construction seasons, Legislator Dixon is pleased that work will be done this year.

“I travel Sowles Road often and I know it is in critical need of repair. Many residents came to me with their concerns and I delivered a citizen petition with numerous signatures calling for action. I am pleased that this roadway is finally getting the attention it needs from the administration. We couldn’t let another year go by without repaving Sowles,” said Legislator Dixon. “The county has a great deal of roadways to repair and I urge the administration to do everything in its power to get crews on the roadways as soon as possible. I am concerned with how late we received this year’s list as we are nearing May, but hope there is no further delay as motorists need safe roadways on which to travel.”

The Road Project List includes more than $27 million in repairs and design work to address the county’s infrastructure concerns.

Significant District 9 projects included in the 2014 Road Project List are as follows:

  • Lake Avenue between South Park Avenue and McKinley Parkway
  • Pleasant Avenue between Route 75 and Amsdell
  • Bayview Road between McKinley Parkway and Abbott Road
  • Sowles Road between Route 20 and McKinley Parkway

“I am pleased with the projects listed as I know residents have dealt with potholes and crumbling roads for far too long. We must stay committed to repairing and maintaining our infrastructure,” Legislator Dixon added.

On April 10, Legislator Dixon and her colleagues in the Majority Caucus called for a special session for 9:30 a.m. Thursday, April 24 to ensure the 2014 Road Project List is reviewed and approved as soon as possible.
