Chairman Mills announces that Springville Boston Road will be repaired

(Boston/Concord, NY) – The Erie County Legislature Chairman John Mills announces that funding has been allocated to repair more than nine miles of Springville Boston Road, considered one of the worst roadways in the entire county. Chairman Mills has long advocated for this repair and knows this work is going to greatly improve the quality of life for residents in that area.
“Springville Boston Road has received a lot of negative attention due to its extremely poor condition, and I want to thank each and every resident who called the administration asking for its immediate repair. I am now pleased to announce the work will be done. I understand the motorists’ frustration and hope this project can be expedited,” said Chairman Mills. “As I have stated, without a doubt, Springville Boston Road must be repaired this year. Residents deserve a safe and reliable road and I am happy we can finally deliver that to them.”
In addition to Springville Boston Road in Concord/Boston, road work slated for this year includes:
• Lake Street from Route 5 to Main Street in the Village of Angola
• Route 240 from Holland-Glenwood Road to Foote Road in Colden/Concord
• Old Lakeshore Road from Lakeview Road to North Creek Road
“I look forward to receiving specific details on the timelines for these projects so residents are aware and can plan accordingly. I also post road closures and detours on my Facebook page if residents would like to connect with me there,” added Chairman Mills. “I look forward to a productive and safe construction season. I strongly urge all residents to abide by all posted signage and to be mindful of crews. We have a lot of work to get done.”
For additional information, please contact Chairman Mills at 858-8850 or john.mills@erie.gov.
