Work to Continue along William Street for Approximately Four Weeks

ERIE COUNTY, NY— The Erie County Department of Environment and Planning (“ECDEP”) Division of Sewerage Management has announced that the current phase of night construction work on the sanitary sewer line installation within the intersection of Transit Road and William Street in the Town of Lancaster is complete.  Construction will now continue along William Street to a point east of the driveway for Flix Theaters – approximately 800-feet from Transit Road – where the alignment will then proceed south off of the roadway.

Sanitary sewer installation along William Street is expected to occur between the hours of 7:00am and 5:30pm starting May 6, 2016.  For those that have observed construction work for this project along Losson Road within the last six (6) months, the anticipated road restrictions will be similar. It is recommended that motorists avoid this stretch of William Street during the construction period, unless a resident is visiting a business on William Street between Transit Road and Penora Street.  Delays are expected even during non-peak traffic periods.

Based upon available information, this work along William Street is estimated to last approximately four (4) weeks.  Within this phase of construction, there may be one or two nights where construction work will occur.  Final paving and restoration will occur later in the year.  Residents are reminded that fines are doubled for speeding and other infractions within the work zone.  Additionally, motorists should not utilize private roadways and driveways to avoid the construction area.

This work is part of the Aurora North Pumping Station Elimination Project, a $7.8 million project that began last fall in Erie County Sewer District No. 4 and upgrades the sanitary sewer system from Borden Road in Cheektowaga to Aurora Street in Lancaster.
