Construction work on Wilson Street in the Town of Fredonia continues to move slowly, and the weather isn’t helping according to Director of Public Works Roger Strohm.

At the Village Board meeting Thursday night, Strohm announced the concrete contractor has been delayed another week.

Then, storms over the weekend added additional complications–water and downed trees.

“I’m managing the domino effect,” Strohm said.

“If the concrete people are late, that means the painting contractor’s schedule could get messed up. It could also affect the paving,” he said.

Installation of the road base, sanitary and sewer lateral work have been completed, and the water main work is done, according to Strohm.

Next steps will be to install curb, gutter and sidewalks, then pave the road and do landscaping.

Residents, for the most part, have not complained, Strohm said.

“This work was all supposed to be done in late spring,” he said. “We are grateful to the residents for their patience.”

With the construction delays and Mother Nature, Strohm said the goal is to have everything done before school starts.
