Erie County Legislator Frank Todaro joined state and local representatives to break ground on the long-awaited multi-million dollar West Main Street project in the Village of Lancaster Thursday morning.
The new project will revitalize the Village Center and enhance nearby infrastructure, including the construction of two new roundabouts and new pedestrian and streetscaping amenities.
Legislator Todaro said, “It was an honor to join our state and local officials for this historic groundbreaking. The project will enhance the quality of life in our community and help draw tourism to our downtown corridor. I thank all visionaries involved in bringing this project to life, including our state representatives who secured the funding needed. I am looking forward to getting work underway and seeing the finished product!”
After the groundbreaking, Legislator Todaro joined Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul for a tour of nearby businesses.
“Our Lancaster business community continues to thrive and I am always proud to support their efforts,” Legislator Todaro added. “It was great to once again meet with some of our many hard-working business owners. I wish them continued success and I am confident they will benefit from these revitalization efforts. In the meantime, I encourage everyone to shop local as often as possible!”
