Repaving of Lake Ontario Parkway
Written by WBTA STAFF on April 14, 2018
Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) delivered roughly 2,000 signatures to Gov. Andrew Cuomo to demanding the repaving of Lake Ontario State Parkway between Kendall and Hamlin. It will be announced by the Department of Transportation (DOT) that $5.2 million worth of road repairs will begin soon. Hawley calls it an investment to improve safety and the accessibility of this important roadway.
“I am thrilled to announce that Lake Ontario State Parkway will be repaired by the Department of Transportation, and it’s due to the wonderful people in my district who helped send a message that we need safe roads in our community,” said Hawley. “We sent thousands of signatures to the governor to get this accomplished. I am looking forward to a safer road in the near future.”
The rough roadway caused significant issues with traffic and its continued maintenance is important to further support local tourism. Residents and Hawley called for these repairs in March 2016 and the DOT is expected to make an announcement on Monday.
