CHEEKTOWAGA – Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz and Legislator Patrick Burke say county road rehab work is progressing on schedule in North Cheektowaga.

Beach Road (from Genesee Street to Wehrle Drive) and nearby Cleveland Drive (from I-90 to Union Road) are being repaved as part of a mill & overlay project that also repaired drainage inlets, strengthened shoulders, and updated sidewalk ramps to ADA standards.

Mr. Poloncarz says the county is investing roughly $1.3 million for the project; Cleveland is $360,000 and Beach is $771,000.

Cleveland Drive is 0.61 miles long from I-90 to Union and has a vehicle count of 10,000 vehicles per day while Beach Road is 1.7 miles long from Genesee to Wehrle and has a vehicle count of 7,500 vehicles per day.

The work is being conducted by Destro Bros. and should be substantially complete (weather permitting) by October 19th.
