BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Work has resumed on a long neglected stretch of New York State Thruway.

On Tuesday, the Thruway Authority announced the launch of Phase 2 to repair and rebuild an approximately four-mile stretch of the I-90. This stretch traverses the Cattaraugus Territory in Western New York.

The first phase of the project between Exit 57A (Eden-Angola) and exit 58 (Silver Creek) started last fall after an agreement was reached between New York State and the Seneca Nation of Indians.

Phase 2 of this project will include full depth repavement repairs to more than 14 lane miles.

Many safety upgrades are also included in this project:

  • Guiderail Replacement
  • Ditch Cleaning
  • New Line Striping for enhanced visibility

Union Concrete and Construction Corp. based in West Seneca, submitted the low bid for this project. Work is expected to be finished by the end of July.

Lane closures and delays are anticipated through the duration of the project. Drivers can find scheduled lane closures before traveling by clicking here.
