Why is this work necessary?
The resurfacing of Business Route 54 is necessary to keep the pavement in good condition. The improved pavement will provide a smoother, safer surface with better traction for motorists. The sidewalk improvements are needed to bring sidewalks and intersections along Business Route 54 into compliance with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. These improvements will provide safer access for all pedestrians and especially those with disabilities.
