Easement granting paves the way for Town to proceed with $3 million rehabilitation of Park Road
Western Regional Off-Track Betting Corp. directors today voted to grant three easements to the Town of Batavia to support the municipality’s $3 million road project stretching from Lewiston Road (Route 63) to Oak Street (Route 98).
“They are small pieces of the property -- three parcels the Town needs to do the work,” WROTB President Henry Wojtaszek said following the board’s conference call meeting. “This will result in major improvements (along the road).”
The Town is in the process of acquiring easements from three Park Road properties -- Batavia Downs Gaming, Alex’s Place and Benderson Development, owner of the former Kmart – as part of the design phase, said Tom Lichtenthal, the Town’s highway superintendent and assistant engineer.
Lichtenthal said the New York State-funded project has been in the works for 12 years.
“It looks like we finally received the money and it looks like we are going to be able to move forward with the project,” he said.
Lichtenthal said the rehabilitation will include new pavement, curbs and curbing from Lewiston Road to Richmond Avenue with sidewalks on both sides of Park Road.
From Richmond Avenue to Route 98, pavement will be overlaid and sidewalks installed on one side of the road, he said. The sidewalks will be placed on the same side as the Genesee County Sheriff’s Department office until the road bends, and then on the other side from the hotels that stretch to Route 98.
He also said that new water lines will be put in and street lights will be installed on Park Road between Route 63 and Richmond Avenue.
The Town of Town of Batavia is handling the engineering aspects of the project.
Lichtenthal said construction bids will go out this winter, with work scheduled to begin in the spring of 2021.
In other news from the WROTB meeting:
-- Directors reported that the Belmont Stakes generated $345,000 in wagers at OTB branches last Saturday and the total handle for the day was $700,000.
Although both figures represent decreases of more than $210,000 from last year, the handle was deemed as significant in light of the economic situation.
-- Live racing will return to Batavia Downs on July 25 but with only 43 dates instead of the 65 previously announced. Wojtaszek said the plan calls for racing on Tuesdays and Saturdays through mid-December.
-- Batavia Bets, the corporation’s secure online horse wagering platform, took in $863,000 in April and more than $1.1 million in May, Comptroller Jacquelyne Leach reported.
