When will county repave Maple Road as promised?
In the May 1 edition of The News there was an article about the repaving of Maple Road in Amherst. The article indicated that “repaving could begin in as soon as four weeks from now on Maple Road between North Forest and Hopkins Road.” Well, as someone who drives this road daily, I can tell you this has not happened. In fact, it has gotten worse.
Sidewalks were removed on one side of Maple near North Forest and have been replaced with uneven gravel. How safe can this be for anyone trying to walk on it? In the article, Charles Sickler, Erie County’s director of engineering, stated that “the money is in place, so that’s a good thing.” So when are the tax dollars that were collected going to fix this hazardous road?
