Abbott Road is a mess, needs to be resurfaced

The resurfacing of Route 20A in Orchard Park has been completed, with a new center lane for turning added. Very nice. My question is: What about Abbott Road from Milestrip out to Armour Duells? This road is just awful – the worst part being from 20A out to Armour Duells.

Taxpayer dollars should be spent on necessary road repairs. There was absolutely nothing wrong with 20A – no potholes, nothing. If the repaving was done only so the lines could be painted to add a turning lane, well, to me that’s insane.

The people who live along Abbott Road (we have no sidewalks, folks) are risking our lives walking here and trying to avoid drivers who are swerving to avoid the potholes. Repave Abbott Road. I don’t mean using a shovel and following behind a truck with blacktop. Give the taxpayers what we pay for.
