Easy riding expected after $3.8 million in Cheektowaga road work

Cheektowaga drivers will experience some easy riding after nearly $3.8 million is pumped into the town's 198 miles of roadway, said Mark Wegner, town highway superintendent.

"In 2018, our paving crew is scheduled to pave 42 streets throughout the town, which equates to 12.5 miles of road," said Wegner.

The following streets will be posted prior to paving: Theresa, Danielle, Collette, Judith, Rachelle, Lois, Dee, Eileen, Steven and Rondelay drives; Nancy Place; Maria and Pheasant lanes and Randy Way.

First, $684,000 in concrete will be installed to repair sidewalks or driveways damaged by sewer rehabilitation and remedy damage incurred by rehab work to storm water receivers, said Mike Lumadue, of the town Highway Department. The reconstruction of Evergreen and Woodbine places will include curbing, sidewalk replacement and apron repairs.

A bond resolution will authorize borrowing $3 million for roadwork reconstruction, resurfacing and drainage improvements in addition to $200,000 for sidewalks.
