Per Visone Construction re: Emergency Sewer Repair:

“Starting on or about [Monday], June 18, 2018, Visone Construction will begin work to replace a sewer manhole on Whaley Ave.  The work is being completed under the direction of the Erie County Division of Sewer Management.  Most of the work will be within the pavement area at Whaley Ave. and Main St.  While work is being completed there will be restricted access to or from Whaley Ave.  We anticipate the repair work will require approximately 3 days to complete.  There is always the possibility we may encounter unforeseen underground conditions or inclement weather that could cause some delay and extend the work another day or two.”
