Cedar Street Reconstruction

Cedar Street is a one-mile-long urban collector located on the southeast side of Batavia. It links two arterial state highways, NY Route 5 (Main Street) on the north and NY Route 63 (Ellicott Street) on the south. Land use along the street is highly mixed and varied, zoned for residential, industrial, and commercial uses. It also includes both public and private park and recreational lands. 

The street is crossed by two active grade-separated railroads, one of which had sub-standard vertical clearance over Cedar Street. The project addressed aged and deteriorated pavement through full-depth reconstruction and eliminated the sub-standard vertical clearance at the Depew, Lancaster & Western Railroad underpass. As a result, truck access and routing efficiencies to industrially-zoned lands were improved. Pedestrian mobility and safety along the length of the street and between the two public parks were likewise improved along the street corridor.
