NYSDOT to Host Public Information Meeting on Ellicottville Project

March 18, 2013 Updated Mar 18, 2013 at 2:19 PM EDT

(WKBW release) The New York State Department of Transportation announced Monday it will host a public information meeting to discuss proposed drainage and sidewalk improvements along NY Route 242 and US Route 219 in the village and town of Ellicottville in Cattaraugus County.

According to a news release issued Monday:

The public meeting will be held on Friday, March 22, 2013, between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. in the Main Chalet of the Holimont Ski Area, located at 6921 Route 242 in the town of Ellicottville. 

The meeting will be an informal open house with displays showing the proposed project.  Department representatives will be present to receive comments and answer individual questions.

The project proposes to install new sidewalk along NY Route 242 from the entrance of the Holimont Ski Area to the existing sidewalk at the Ellicottville village line.  Various open ditches will be re-graded and a closed drainage system will be installed in some areas on NY route 242 to improve drainage.  The intersection of Fillmore Street with US Route 219 will have an improved turning radius, and new curb ramps will be installed in the business area of the village of Ellicottville.

The purpose of the meeting is to obtain comments on the proposed project from individuals, groups and officials.
