Two-way center turn lane to be installed on Southwestern Boulevard

A two-way center turn lane will be installed on Southwestern Boulevard (Route 20) between Lakeview Road and Amsdell Road in the Town of Hamburg where there have been a string of fatal accidents, the most recent on April 30, Assemblyman Sean Ryan, D-Buffalo, announced Friday.

The state Department of Transportation also will install rumble strips in the area and deer warning signs between Pleasant Avenue and Amsdell Road.

Ryan wrote to the DOT requesting that it conduct a traffic study on the section of Route 20. A public meeting was held in January, with comments included in the traffic study.

A start date for construction has not been determined.
