William Street Improvements

March 2023 Update

After extensive discussion between Erie County and the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), funding has been secured and a preferred preliminary design alternative has been identified.  A public hearing will be scheduled later this year to present the preferred design alternative and answer any questions you may have. There will be numerous right-of-way (ROW) acquisitions required to complete the project. NYSDOT will be acquiring the property and will be reaching out to all affected owners.

At this time no action is required on your part. Notice will be provided to all the residents once the public hearing date is scheduled. Periodic updates will also be provided on this project website. Please continue to check back!

March 2022 Update

The project team would like to thank everyone for providing your feedback on this important project! We are in the process of reviewing all the comments received and determining the best design for the corridor. Once complete, we will be working with the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) to determine which options we can fit in our budget.

We anticipate having another public information meeting this summer to share the preferred alternative. Notice will be provided to all the residents along with updated information on this project website. Please continue to check for periodic updates.

Thank you again for your continued interest in this project!

About the Project

The Erie County Department of Public Works is progressing the William Street Improvement Project. The purpose of this project is to rehabilitate nearly 2.85 miles of roadway between Transit Road and Bowen Road. The exact goals of this project are still unknown, however, potential improvements could include milling and overlay of the existing pavement, widened shoulders, a center two way left turn lane from Transit to Aurora, addition of sidewalks and drainage improvements.

Input from the public is needed at this time! Please let us know what you would like to see included in the project!
