City of Tonawanda announces list of streets will be repaved in 2017

The City of Tonawanda is preparing to do $800,000 to $900,000 in street repairs.

Mayor Rick Davis said the River Edge area, where streets from the late 1980s are still in place, is one area that will be addressed.

Davis called those streets pretty terrible.

Other streets where work is planned include: parts of Adams Street, Grove Street and Grove Place, Clinton Street, Niagara Shore, Ridgedale Circle and Bellhurst Street.

The city will receive a 50/50 state funding match to help pay for the project.

The Town of Tonawanda Highway Department will provide milling services for the city, which saves the city 60 percent of the cost of using a private contractor, said Davis.

Davis said city officials will also contact the Erie County Water Authority so the list can be matched with a five-year master plan.

"The last thing you want to is repave them and two years later they are ripping them up to replace water lines," said Davis.

He said cameras are also being put into sewer lines while they have the roads opened up.
