Central Avenue work progressing

Crews are expected to continue work on Central Avenue in Dunkirk for another week.

Central Avenue work in the city of Dunkirk is in its second day with construction crews making progress.

Currently, work crews are grading the roads in preparation for paving. Most of the work began Tuesday near Millard Fillmore Drive.

“One of the most frequent complaints that my office receives is about the roads, and with Central Avenue being a main thoroughfare through the city, this was a priority for me and my administration. I want to personally thank our DPW Director, Randy Woodbury and his staff, along with the Chautauqua County representatives who have worked with the city,” Mayor Wilfred Rosas said. “Having Central Avenue milled down to the bricks, and repaved with quality materials before the winter season is something that we can all be proud of and look forward to.”

The work is expected to take another week, according to city Department of Public Works chief Randy Woodbury.
