Town of Tonawanda

Town highway department officials say they’re aware of the rough condition Delaware Road is in after a water line replacement project was completed late in the fall.

Highway Superintendent William E. Swanson said he has had crews out daily filling potholes but must wait until warmer weather to mill and resurface.

“We are aware of the current condition of the road and we are monitoring the potholes,” Swanson said. “As the need arises, we will make whatever temporary repairs we can this winter to keep the road as safe as possible for motorists.”

Delaware Road from Brighton Road to Sheridan Drive will be the first project the department undertakes this spring, he said. Delaware Road from Sheridan Drive to Highland Avenue will be milled and paved once Kenmore West concludes its school year in late June, he said.

“I can assure our residents that this project will be atop our priority list in 2014,” Swanson said in a statement.
