Legislator Joe joined Holland Town Supervisor Mike Kasprzyk and Highway Superintendent Pat Joyce to survey roads throughout the town 

The conditions of these roads are truly horrendous
The report’s findings are deeply disturbing and we need to address the issues raised in the report
We agree with the recommendations of the report and believe Commissioner Schad should resign immediately

Erie County Legislature Majority Leader Joseph C. Lorigo announces that Girdle Road Bridge and Jamison Road Bridge, both in the Town of Elma, will be replaced this year with work beginning at both sites on Monday, March 14.


The project will force the closure of Girdle Road, from Clinton Road to Bullis Road from mid-March through the fall. In addition, Jamison Road Bridge will be closed from mid-March through the end of August, with a posted closure for through traffic from Girdle Road to Two Rod Road.


“I am pleased to see that after some delay the county is finally able to move forward with these projects and replace these major bridges in the Town of Elma, ensuring the safety of motorists. These are two projects I have been pushing to be expedited. The county is responsible for a large quantity of bridges and roads, which is why continuous maintenance is critical,” said Majority Leader Lorigo.


The funding was approved in the 2015 Road Project List, however due to the delay in steel being available these projects were pushed off to 2016.
