Erie & Depeyster Street Reconstruction

Project Location: Erie Street from S. Water Street to State Route 59

                                 Depeyster Street from Haymaker Pkwy to Erie Street

Project Budget: $1,630,000


Project Schedule:

Design Start Date              January 2011

Construction Start Date    April 2012

 Project Finish                    December 2013

This project will complete the reconstruction of both Erie Street and Depeyster Street within the downtown redevelopment area.  PARTA will be building a new transit facility at the N.E. corner of Depeyster Street and Erie Street.  That project will include the reconstruction of Erie Street and Depeyster Street along the frontage of the development.










The completion of Erie Street and Depeyster Street will support vehicular and pedestrian access and utility services for redevelopment.  The current pavement condition is very poor and requires pavement replacement to serve the vehicular traffic as intended.  The pavement condition also creates a safety hazard due to its poor condition.  The addition of overhead lighting will increase vehicular and pedestrian visibility and safety. 


                                                        Looking West on Erie Street from SR 59

Erie Street and Depeyster Street will be reconstructed to create a pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular friendly facility. The project includes burying overhead utilities, sharrows, new streetscape including lighting and street trees, pavement replacement and on-street parking at the curb lanes.
