Partial Road Paving List

“The Town of Amherst Highway Department has started our road maintenance projects. Attached is a partial list of roads to be paved this year. The Highway Department would like to add more roads to this list depending on what funding is available. Due to the pandemic there has been a loss of revenue to the Town and New York State. It is still undetermined what effect this will have on our paving schedule for the rest of 2020.“
