Summer is the busy season for road construction.
Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz joined Deputy Commissioner of Public Works Karen Hoak this week, on Borden Road in Cheektowaga, to review the work taking place there, as well as preview an extensive roadwork program planned countywide for 2023.
“This will be a busy year for our Department of Public Works, and the project here on Borden Road is indicative of our continuing commitment to investing in Erie County infrastructure, providing residents and motorists with safe roads,” Poloncarz said. “This year’s investment of nearly $50 million allows us to cover road work in every corner of Erie County, with projects big and small, and crews are already at work and taking advantage of the spring weather.”
He noted more than $4.7 million will be invested in mill and overlay projects covering roughly 19 miles of county roads in 2023, including work on Grand Island – on East River from Stony Point Road to Baseline Road.
