FREDONIA – The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) has rescinded all approvals for the proposed roundabout project at the U.S. Route 20 and NY Route 60 intersection in Fredonia.
The decision by DOT comes in the wake of a lawsuit filed in the State Supreme Court by the local McDonald’s restaurant franchise operator, who challenged the determination that the roundabout project was not subject to an environmental impact review.
The DOT had received design approval for the approximately $3.3 million project which was in the detailed design phase with ambitions for putting it out to bid by late fall, and construction to begin in the spring.
All that has been put on hold for the indefinite future.
