North Union Street to Open for Traffic

October 30, 2015—Olean--North Union Street will open for traffic in the early evening of Friday, October 30, 2015. The Sullivan Street to Delaware Street closure will be lifted for the weekend. In order to complete this phase of the project, the street will be closed to traffic as needed during the next couple of weeks.

“I am looking forward to my first trip down the entire length of North Union Street,” Mayor Aiello said. “I really appreciate the patience that our residents and businesses have exhibited during the project. We have been getting positive feedback on the new traffic pattern and when the new portion of the street opens, the traffic problems that we have experienced on North First Street and Wayne Street will ease.”

Mayor Aiello added, “Please continue to drive with caution when driving through the work area and as a reminder, the median is not to be used as a cross-over for vehicles.”

The North First Street detour will continue to be used as an alternative route when needed.
