PUBLIC NOTICE: 2017-2021 Transportation Improvement Program Amendment # 15

Overview

The Greater Buffalo-Niagara Regional Transportation Council (GBNRTC), the Metropolitan Planning Organization for Erie and Niagara Counties, is proposing to amend the 2017-2021 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) by modifying the following project:  

Project Identification Number (PIN) 5812.70 – Bridge MBC & Preservation Program Block

Project Details

The original intent of this projects was bridge preservation. This modification will significantly change the scope of this project to include the partial superstructure replacements of the northbound (BIN 1054582) and southbound (BIN 1054581) NY Rt 400 over NY Rt 16 bridges in the town of Aurora, Erie County. Funds need to be advanced to meet a letting date of April, 2019.

The project will rehabilitate the deficient structural elements of Span 2 of each structure. Rehabilitation is expected to return the bridges to a non- deficient condition for at least 25 years (the expected service life of the remainder of the overall bridges).

The project total is $6M. Funds are being switched from National Highway Performance Program (NHPP) and Surface (Transportation Program) STP Flex to all NHPP based on funding eligibility of bridges in the project. A small offset ($0.174M Federal) is needed from PIN 581262 (Bridge MBC & Preservation Program Block) to fund additional Design funds needed. Fiscal constraint is maintained.
