SALAMANCA — Winter may seem never-ending, but local public works departments are looking forward to spring and the start of roadwork repair season.
At the last Salamanca Public Works Commission meeting, Superintendent Rob Carpenter said the state Department of Transportation has expedited the projects for Routes 219 and 417 in the city.
“They’re supposed to start construction this spring,” Carpenter said. “And I see New York state has been down here doing some surveying, so I’m hoping that’s a good sign.”
The first project is listed as “in development” on the DOT website with the bid opening expected in the spring. Construction is expected to begin in summer 2020 and completed in the fall, according to the website.
