Where we live: Town of Tonawanda

Town of Tonawanda

Work to repair one of the town’s bumpiest roads continues this week with a milling and paving project on Delaware Road.

Crews have been using the town’s milling machine to grind Delaware, from Sheridan Drive south to the border with the Village of Kenmore, and surrounding side streets, said Highway Superintendent William Swanson. The portion of Delaware north of Sheridan was repaired in late May and early June.

The project is anticipated to be completed around July 16, depending on the weather, Swanson said. Once milling is complete, crews will pave and stripe Delaware first, then the side streets, he said.

The town and village are splitting the cost of repairing Kenton Road, which is shared by both municipalities, Swanson said. Plans also call for repairing Deerhurst Park Boulevard, from Colvin Boulevard to Irving Terrace, and Louvaine Drive, from Cortland Avenue south to Wilton Parkway, later this month.
