Dale Drive Project Has Begun

CASSADAGA — A shoulder expansion project on Dale Drive in Cassadaga has begun. The project involves adding a 5-foot asphalt paved shoulder to the existing road. The road is not expected to be closed to traffic during construction. Temporary lane closures during construction working hours are expected to occur into August. The work zone traffic controls will involve temporary lane closures to one side of the road at a time during working hours.
