Crews Use Good Weather to Mill, Re-pave Stretch between Brighton-Sheridan
ERIE COUNTY, NY— The Erie County Department of Public Works’ Highways Division has announced the completion of a late-season road project on Colvin Boulevard between Brighton Road and Sheridan Drive. The project included milling and paving the four-lane, 40’ wide road driving surface, which was repaired with over 1,500 tons of polymer asphalt to give the pavement more flexibility. Other improvements on the approximately one-mile stretch of road included the repair or replacement of twelve drainage inlets to enhance drainage of the road surface.
“Colvin Boulevard is one of the latest and last additions to a very busy schedule of road work around Erie County in 2014. This is a very heavily-traveled route, with over 11,000 vehicles per day, so I thank the crews for taking advantage of good late-season weather to get this done,” said Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz. “My administration has invested roughly $60 million in roads and infrastructure over the past two years, and our focus on future improvements remains as strong as ever heading into 2015.”
The repaired expanse of road runs between the Town of Tonawanda and the Village of Kenmore.
