Wind turbine route among road projects

LITTLE VALLEY – Cattaraugus County’s most expensive road project this summer may make a smooth road for what could be hundreds of truckloads of components for wind turbines.

County Road 30 – Chipmonk Road in the towns of Allegany and Carrollton – is slated by the county Public Works Department for a nearly $3 million reconstruction this summer. That is almost half of the county’s nearly $7 million road construction plan for 2012.

EverPower Wind Holdings Inc. is also eyeing Chipmonk Road as a route to haul wind turbine components from Interstate 86 and for hauling gravel, cement and other building materials. Trucks would also have to use South Nine Mile Road from I-86.

Members of the County Legislature’s Public Works Committee reviewed on Wednesday the summer road, bridge, culvert and facilities construction plans totaling nearly $12 million. The Chipmonk Road project was slated for last summer, but was held up over wetlands permit issues.
