Proposal for Thruway ramp project in Hamburg slated for public meeting

Plans to change the configuration of the on- and off-ramps to the New York State Thruway at Camp Road/Route 75 in the Town of Hamburg will be the subject of a public meeting on April 25.

The proposal calls for the removal of a bridge over Camp Road and the existing exit and entrance ramps on the south side of Camp Road. The proposed project also calls for the construction of a road-level intersection with a traffic light, the state Thruway Authority announced.

State officials believe the project at the Thruway Exit 57 will improve traffic flow in the area, improve lane and shoulder width and upgrade features for pedestrians.

The meeting is scheduled to happen from 5 to 8 p.m. April 25 in Hamburg Town Hall, Room 7B, 6100 South Park Ave. Representatives from the Thruway Authority and the state Department of Transportation will be on hand to answer questions. Project renderings will also be on display.

The project has an anticipated budget of about $3.5 million. Construction is pegged to begin in the spring of 2018 and take about a year to finish, the Thruway Authority said.
