Rte. 242 Work to Continue Through July
The NYS Department of Transportation’s work on a multi-faceted road and sidewalk project in Ellicottville has begun again after the winter hiatus. The project includes improving drainage and constructing a new sidewalk along Route 242 between HoliMont’s main entrance and Greer Hill Road, improving handicap-accessible pedestrian ramps at several village intersections and reconfiguring the difficult intersection at Route 219/Elizabeth Street/Fillmore Drive. Most of the drainage and curb work for the sidewalk project was completed last year.
Currently, signage is in place on 242 informing drivers that the road will be down to one lane from early morning until 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Other traffic disruptions are expected as the project proceeds. Please watch for signs, flaggers and construction vehicles.
