Road Repaved from William to Harlem; 1.5 mile Route Includes JFK Jr./Sr. High School 

ERIE COUNTY, NY— Cayuga Creek Road in Cheektowaga is ready for back-to-school traffic as Erie County Highway crews put the finishing touches on the roadway following a road resurfacing that began with milling of the road surface on August 7. Following that, Cayuga Creek was repaved from Harlem Road to William Street using over 3,400 tons of binder and nearly 2,500 tons of top asphalt. Water Authority repairs were also a part of the project. Final striping and driveway approach transitions will be completed next week as part of a concentrated effort to have the roadway finished by the beginning of the new school year.

“Cayuga Creek Road is ready to handle back-to-school traffic and everyday motorists following the completion of this project,” said Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz. “Cayuga Creek Road is an important thoroughfare with JFK Jr./Sr. High School located on it. I am pleased to report that this work, part of a very extensive road repair schedule taking place all around Erie County in 2014, was completed on schedule and with minimal disruption to make it ready for the new school year.”

Over 3,500 vehicles travel on Cayuga Creek Road each day. This project is one of more than 60 individual road projects taking place across Erie County this year. Erie County is investing over $29 million in road infrastructure repairs in 2014, with a total of over $60 million invested in the last two years alone.
