Erie County, NY – County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz announced a slate of county public works projects that are planned for 2019 on Monday, March 25, 2019. This year, Erie County will spend over $40 million to maintain and repair county roads along with bridges and other structures that county owns including accompanying curbing and drainage. The work will be completed by the Erie County Department of Public Works and is scheduled to begin as soon as the weather allows.
Erie County Legislator Tom Loughran is pleased to announce the following project in the town of Amherst:
- Kensington Avenue, from NYS Route 5 to Harlem Rd
The project itself is estimated to cost $624,000 and extend slightly over one mile. This section of road, which currently carries 4 lanes of traffic, will see a complete mill and overlay of the existing asphalt.
Legislator Loughran said, “I want to thank the County Executive for prioritizing infrastructure in this year’s county budget, and our Department of Public Works for maintaining the extensive road network that Erie County owns.”
There will also be additional projects including road patching that are not included in this announcement but to be expected. For most up to date information on roadwork throughout the district, please visit www.erie.gov/dpw.
