The Final Wrap-Up...The Erie County Fair

The Final Wrap-Up...The Erie County Fair

Well fellow Fairgoers, the end has finally come, The Erie County Fair ended on August 23rd.  I can tell you that for the real Fairgoer, that was a really sad day!

Throughout the 12 days of the Erie County Fair we laughed, shared stories, experienced all kinds of weather, but most of all, had a truly terrific good time!

NYS DOT to Make Improvements to Ease Route 5 Traffic


HAMBURG, N.Y. -- The New York State Department of Transportation held a public hearing Wednesday night to go over proposed changes to Route 5 in Hamburg.

The DOT wants to improve the intersection of Route 5 and Bayview Road where there are more accidents than the statewide average. The state's preferred plan would eliminate the Bayview access road that crosses between eastbound and westbound Route 5. Instead, Hoover Road would be realigned to meet up with Route 5, and along with an extended Lake Erie Boulevard, would create a four-way intersection with traffic lights.

The DOT says this will be helpful once the new Fed-Ex facility opens.
