Meeting Planned to Inform Public on
Replacement of Catt Creek Bridge

The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) will host a public information meeting on Tuesday, September 30, 2014, to discuss the proposed replacement of the former Route 219 (South Cascade Drive-Miller Road) Bridge over Cattaraugus Creek in the town of Concord, Erie County, and the town of Ashford, Cattaraugus County.

The meeting will be held between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. at the Concord Town Hall, located at 86 Franklin Street in the village of Springville. The meeting will include informational displays for the proposed project, and Department representatives will be present to receive comments and answer individual questions.

The existing South Cascade-Miller Road Bridge over Cattaraugus Creek was built in 1956, and currently is posted for a maximum weight of 15 tons. The project proposes to remove the existing bridge structure and construct a new bridge on the same vertical and horizontal alignments. The proposed bridge replacement would provide a non-posted structure with a service life of 75 years.

The purpose of the meeting is to obtain comments on the proposed project from individuals, groups, officials, local agencies, and to encourage public input into the development of this transportation project. Traffic control during the construction of the new bridge will be discussed at the meeting.

For further information, or to request a sign language interpreter or assistive listening device system, please contact Dave Hill, assistant regional design engineer, at (716) 847-3229, or write to the New York State Department of Transportation, 100 Seneca Street, Buffalo, New York 14203, and reference Project Identification Number 5101.82.
