The Mansfield Board of Trustees was briefed on the status of construction plans for County Road 13 during its meeting on March 21.
County Rd. 13, also known as Maples Rd., is being fully reconstructed by the Cattaraugus County Department of Public Works from the intersection with Kent Rd to the intersection with Hollister Hill Rd. The project includes resurfacing the entire road, straightening out and widening certain sections of the roadway, replacing a bridge and more.
Town Supervisor Bob Keis reported that residents in the town of Mansfield who live on that section of Maples Road have received letters from the DPW regarding what to expect during the process. The county hopes to complete construction this year.
Travelers are advised to drive carefully and watch for lane closures and traffic pattern changes as the project proceeds.
Three bids were received in response to an advertisement for Town of Mansfield property mowing. The low bid from Westside Handyman and Lawn Care owner John Kinder was accepted. Kinder’s company will mow four cemeteries plus the lawns around the town hall and the highway garage.
As is customary in March each year, the board also conducted a review of the supervisor’s 2015 accounts during the meeting.
The next meeting of the Mansfield Board is scheduled for Monday, April 18 at 7 p.m. at the town hall in Eddyville. All are welcomed.
