Erie County Legislature Majority Leader Joseph Lorigo announces the proposed 2014 Road Project List includes funding to repair roadways throughout his district. 

“Our roadways were significantly impacted by this harsh winter and now we have to ensure we are doing everything possible to repair as many roadways as we can. I am pleased that the Road Project List is addressing many concerns I have within my district, however there is still much work to be done and I’ll continue to advocate for appropriate funding to complete projects. Fixing minor issues before they become major problems saves taxpayers in the long run,” said Majority Leader Lorigo.

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

Projects include:

  • Micropaving Center Street from Beech to Crump in Aurora/Holland
  • Bridge work on Bullis Road over Pond Brook in Elma; Willardshire Road over Cazenovia Creek in Elma; and Holland Glenwood Road (East Bridge) over Cazenovia Creek in Holland.
  • Road slide construction on Vermont Street in Holland
  • Micropaving Seneca Creek from Transit to Union Road in West Seneca

On April 10, Legislator Lorigo and his 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.
