Work is underway this summer to give motorists a smoother ride on the Lockport Expressway in Amherst, officials said.
The project will crack and seat the concrete pavement on Lockport Expressway (the I-990) and then place a multicourse of asphalt between the Youngmann Expressway and North French Road. Crack and seat is a process used to prepare the existing concrete surface for the asphalt overlay, according to the state Department of Transportation.
The project is expected to be complete by Nov. 1. The total cost is $18.27 million in federal and state funding.
