IRVING – The New York Thruway Authority says work to completely rebuild I-90 in the Cattaraugus Territory is now underway.
The first phase between exit 57A, Eden – Angola, and exit 58, Silver Creek, began last fall after the Authority reached a deal with the Seneca Nation.
Phase two of the project includes full depth pavement repairs. Roadway shoulders will also be fully reconstructed.
In addition to an improved driving surface, the project includes numerous safety upgrades such as guiderail replacement, ditch cleaning and new line striping for enhanced visibility.
Lane closures and minimal delays are anticipated through the duration of the roadwork. Motorists can find scheduled lane closures before traveling on the Thruway’s website and by using its free mobile app.
In total the project will cost $20 Million. The entire project is expected to be complete by the end of July.
