If you have ever driven along the Lake Ontario State Parkway, you’ll know that it is as bumpy as it is beautiful. You may have heard people who drive it gripe about it.
Now, it looks like the State is going to move forward with a multi-million dollar plan to smooth things over.
Starting next year, the State will begin re-paving two major stretches of the Parkway. Both stretches are in Monroe County and will not extend west of Kendall.
The Parkway paving includes $8.97 million to pave the parkway from Route 19 east to Payne Beach in 2017, and then $5.2 million to pave the Parkway from Route 19 in Hamlin to Route 237 in Kendall in 2018.
The total cost is set at $14 million and is part of a five-year plan that ends in 2020.
