Where we live: Town of Tonawanda

Town of Tonawanda

Highway crews will continue work this week on Delaware Road, which was ravaged by the unusually harsh winter, according to Highway Superintendent William Swanson.

To minimize the inconvenience for drivers, crews will begin paving Delaware, from Sheridan Drive north to Thorncliff Road, overnight from 10 p.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday, Swanson said. Paving will continue for up to four nights, weather permitting.

Milling and paving Delaware Road, south of Sheridan to Highland Parkway, will begin once Kenmore West High School lets out for the summer, Swanson said. The project began May 23, with the town-owned milling machine used to grind down Delaware Road, which was pocked with potholes.

“Since the recent acquisition of our road miller, we are now able to mill and pave more roads in the course of the paving season,” Swanson said. “Last year alone, we did 21 lane miles of road, which is almost triple the amount of past seasons.”

Swanson said the town will assist the Village of Kenmore this summer with its road projects and may partner with Erie County to pave county roads in the town.

• The Town Board meets at 7:30 p.m. Monday in Council Chambers at the Municipal Building, 2919 Delaware Avenue. A work session begins at 4 in the conference room.
