Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick announces that the contract to reconstruct Brighton Road was approved at today’s session, Thursday, July 24, 2014.  The $2.65 million project is expected to begin in mid-August.

 

“Brighton Road is in desperate need of repair and I am pleased that all the necessary steps have been taken to ensure reconstruction will take place this year. With today’s approval by the Legislature, the county can finally fix a major section of one of the worst roadways in our area,” said Legislator Hardwick. “I will continue to work on securing funding for the rest of Brighton Road.”

 

The Brighton Road project spans from Fries Road to Niagara Falls Boulevard in the Town of Tonawanda. The deteriorating roadway will be reconstructed, and critical drainage work completed. The project also calls for sidewalk repairs and curb replacement.  The signals at Fries Road and Parkhurst Boulevard will be replaced as part of the project. 

 

Funding is included in the $27 million 2014 Road Project List and Brighton Road is one of the largest projects listed. The approved bidder ($2.08 million) is Accadia Site Contracting.
