Where We Live: Southern Erie County

Southern Erie County

The South Cascade-Miller Road Bridge in Springville will be closed Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Village officials said that the structure, better known as the “old Route 219 Bridge”, is being inspected by the NYS Department of Transportation. Though it is scheduled to be closed for five days, the duration will depend upon on how quickly inspectors complete their work, Mayor William Krebs said.

In the meantime, a detour will route drivers over the divided portion of Route 219.

Also in Springville, food allergies will be the main topic of discussion in a presentation hosted by the Springville Griffith School District at 7 p.m. Thursday in the high school auditorium, 290 North Buffalo Street, Springville.

Guest speakers are Dr. Andrew W. Green, an allergy specialist from West Seneca and Dr. Robbin H. Hansen, a pediatrician in Springville. Members of the Springville Griffith nursing staff will also be on hand.

Food allergies affect one of every 13 children under the age of 18 in the United States.

The district welcomes anyone interested in pediatric food allergies ages pre-kindergarten through grade 12. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
