A bridge rehabilitation project along Route 394 is well underway in the town of Poland.
According to Susan S. Surdej of the New York State Department of Transportation, abutment and pier work have been completed on the bridge that spans the Western NY & PA Railroad and Lake Erie Railroad as well as Conewango Creek. She said the bridge deck was scheduled to be poured Wednesday and Thursday of this week.
