State Department of Transportation to hos public information meeting on proposed highway improvement project on State Rte. 60 in Town of Pomfret

Open House Set for Wednesday, January 12, at 4 p.m. at
Fredonia Opera House

The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) will host a public information meeting on Wednesday, January 12, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. pertaining to a proposed highway improvement project scheduled to begin next fall on State Route 60, from State Route 83 to U.S. Route 20, in the Town of Pomfret, Chautauqua County.
The informal, open house meeting will be held at the Fredonia Opera House, located at 9 Church Street in Fredonia.  The session will feature displays about the project and provide an opportunity for discussion with NYSDOT representatives, who will be available to receive comments and answer individual questions.  No formal presentation will be made.  All meeting attendees will be required to wear a mask.
The purpose of the project is to improve highway operations and enhance safety along State Route 60 by widening the road to accommodate a center, two-way left-turn lane. The project also calls for the replacement of an existing box culvert south of State Route 83 to help prevent flooding and the extension of the existing sidewalk from the roundabout to McAllister Road.
