Wed July 31, 2013 - Northeast Edition

New York State Department of Transportation Commissioner Joan McDonald announced that work will begin on a $2 million project to replace the bridge deck on the NY Route 400 (Aurora Expressway) northbound access ramps to and from NY Route 277 (Union Road) in the town of West Seneca, Erie County.

The project is funded through the NY Works program and meets the goals of Gov. Cuomo’s Drivers First initiative to ensure that construction causes the least impact to motorists.

“Improving these ramps through Governor Cuomo’s innovative NY Works program will extend their life by decades and prevent a costly bridge replacement in just a few years,” said Commissioner McDonald. “Thanks to the governor, this project and dozens of others are making smart investments in our infrastructure, supporting economic development and job creation.”

The project will be completed by Sept. 1, 2013.

This project is part of a $13.8 million contract to replace bridge decks on 10 structures in Erie and Monroe counties. The contractor for the project is Union Concrete Constructors of West Seneca, N.Y.
