FREDONIA – One of the busiest intersections in Chautauqua County will be getting an upgrade, thanks to recently announced funding from Albany.
Governor Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday announced that a total of $75.6 million will be split among 33 projects across the state, thanks to funding from the federal Highway Safety Improvement Program.
In Chautauqua County, $720,000 will be used to upgrade the intersection if U.S. Route 20 and State Route 60 in Fredonia. The intersection will be reconstructed to improve safety and traffic flow. New lighting and sidewalks also will be installed.
Projects for this highway safety funding are selected through a competitive process designed to support initiatives that have the greatest ability to reduce traffic fatalities and severe injuries.
Federal funding was made available to the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), which administers the Highway Safety Improvement Program. Information on the Highway Safety Improvement program is available on the NYSDOT web site at https://www.dot.ny.gov/safety.
