Meeting on safety of Route 20 set for Monday in Hamburg

A public meeting will be held Monday to address community concerns about numerous accidents and incidents along a stretch of Southwestern Boulevard (Route 20) in Hamburg.

Assemblyman Sean Ryan, D-Buffalo, will host the meeting at 5 p.m. at the clubhouse at Villas at Brierwood, 5665 Southwestern Blvd.

Residents have expressed concern about the safety of the road after a number of accidents, particularly between Amsdell Road and Pleasant Avenue.

The state Department of Transportation is conducting a traffic safety study on that section of road to determine if any changes are necessary. Representatives of the DOT will be available to answer questions about the study and to address the concern of residents.
