A $4.2 million makeover of Main Street in Williamsville will begin in the spring, state officials said this week.
The improvements will include milling and paving from curb to curb, enhanced crosswalk pavement markings, new curb ramps and upgraded traffic signals.
Traffic-calming curb extensions called bump-outs will be installed at various intersections to improve visibility between pedestrians and motorists. A pedestrian hybrid beacon known as a HAWK signal will be installed at the mid-block crossing between Rock Street and East Spring Street, in front of Amherst Town Hall.
New trees, benches, planters, trash receptacles, newspaper corrals and bicycle racks will be installed along the corridor.
The project will be bid in December, with contracts requiring completion of work in the village core before major summer events begin.
