Road, Bridge Work Announced
The Chautauqua County Department of Public Facilities has announced its schedule for planned road and bridge work this year.
Work includes bridge/culvert replacements and rehabilitation, drainage projects, general maintenance, surface treating projects, and paving. Funding comes from a variety of sources, including the New York State Consolidated Highway Improvement Program, PAVE-NY, the Federal government and Chautauqua County.
County crews have already started working on winter clean up, ditching and patching potholes. Motorists are reminded to be aware of construction crews working on the highways. Please look for signs and work zone flaggers; minimize distractions such as using cell phones, eating or drinking; and obey the work zone speeds.
Starting in early May, the crack sealing program will start on approximately 40 miles of county roads. Crews will also start preparing about 95 miles of county roads to be surface treated.
In June, under the shared service program, the county and participating municipalities will start the highway surface treating program. This includes various county and town roads that will be surface treated or “oil and stoned.”
