The Livingston County Highway Department will soon begin work to improve sections of Bronson Hill Road (County Route 62) between the towns of Avon and Livonia. The Bronson Hill Road Rehabilitation Project will restore the existing pavement surface, enhance drainage conditions, and replace or repair up to 12 undersized drainage cross culverts, among other planned updates. The work will also extend the roadway’s service life by eight to 10 years, said Livingston County Highway Deputy Superintendent Zachary Cracknell.
“These needed improvements will result in a much-improved roadway for the more than 125 residences along Bronson Hill Road and the 3,500 vehicles that use this road every day,” said Cracknell.
Cracknell expects project staging to begin the week of July 26, 2021 with crews beginning work on site during the week of August 2, 2021. Two road closures will likely be necessary during the life of the project. One will occur as crews replace two large culverts between Rt. 20A and Stone Hill Road. The second closure will occur to replace a third culvert between Sutton Road and Routes 5&20. The closures should last no more than a couple weeks and crews will detour local traffic during that time. Highway Department signage will provide motorists with ample advance notice of any upcoming closures. County officials expect the project to be completed by the end of June 2022.
The Livingston County Board of Supervisors awarded the bid and authorized the construction contract to Ramsey Constructors, Inc., of Livonia, N.Y., at their June 23 board meeting, approving an overall project cost of $3,111,958. A total of seven construction companies submitted bids for the roadway’s rehabilitation.
