The DOT today announced a $585,737 project to pave a portion of Route 262 in Elba and Bryon.
The contract is expected to be awarded to Hanson Aggregates New York of Jamesville.
The section will stretch from Route 98 to Route 237.
The announcement was contained in a press release that announced several projects across WNY. All of the projects will take about two weeks each, with most of the work being done before the end of the summer, but all projects completed before 2010.
Also from the press release:
The economic-recovery funds coming to New York State for transportation projects must follow the same process required for distributing all federal transportation funds. The funds are allocated to projects that are selected by the 13 regional Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) across the state, which are comprised of local elected officials, local transit operators and NYSDOT representatives. MPOs vote unanimously on projects for their Transportation Improvement Program, and the projects are candidates for economic-recovery funds. These paving projects were approved by the Genesee Transportation Council to be eligible to receive ARRA funding.
