Update on Route 104 and Route 404

Posted on April 16, 2012 at 3:15 PM by PattiAnn Schultz

On Tuesday, April 10th Gary Kleist and Don Hauza from our Engineering Department, Joe Herbst from our Highway, Glenn Cooke from WCCED, Barry Deane from the Town Board and I met with a number of representatives from the State Department of Transportation.  We were informed that Route 104 from the Bay Bridge east to Phillips Road will be re-paved and re-striped this summer.

 

However, Route 404 is another story. Right now state workers are patching pot holes on 404 and I think it is not a forward way of fixing the long term problem. This summer they might look at fixing the intersections of Holt Road and Ridge Road and Phillips Road and Ridge Roads; a fix of re-paving that might last a couple of years.

 

At this time, in 2014, Route 404 is scheduled to get re-paved and the shoulders of the road fixed. In 2015 the intersections would be brought up to standards by improving the intersections with turn lanes and longer stacking lanes.

 

We did hear during our one-hour meeting that money was a problem and allocations needed to be made within districts within the state. We were also assured that Webster is receiving its share of money with a lot of the money being spent recently on the Bay Bridge.

 

We also discussed the possibility of a Wendy’s restaurant across from Town Hall which is being held up by the state.  This hold up is because the state wants too much money from the developer to make improvements to Ridge Road which the developer cannot afford just to put in Wendy’s. The state said they would work with the developer on this topic. I have since relayed that message to the developer for him to meet with the state and see if we can jump start this project again. 

 

Pharmaceutical Collection

 

The Sewer Department will be having a Pharmaceutical Collection on Saturday, April 28th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at 226 Phillips Road. They will only accept unused, unwanted, or expired medication and no mercury or hazardous material will be accepted.

This is an outstanding way of getting rid of medications without flushing these down the toilet into Lake Ontario and harming the fish and the environment.

 

If you have any questions about your town government, please contact me during regular business hours at (585) 872-7068; or email me anytime at supervisor@ci.webster.ny.us
