While major construction is underway along the south section of North Union Street, a project equally important has commenced on the north section of North Union Street – specifically the planning and planting of rain gardens (or biorentention basins) in the bump-outs.
The North Union Complete Street Transformation Project is getting ready to start again. To prepare the community for the coming months and understand how the construction process will work – we’ve provided a construction guide.
Short videos demonstrate the timeliness of the North Union Street Restoration. Planners and developers nationwide are racing to implement Complete Streets because that's what drives property value and community vibrancy.
We invite the community to join us at a Community Participation Meeting scheduled for Tuesday, May 24, 2016 at 6:15 p.m. in the Council Chambers of the Olean Municipal Building, 101 East State Street, Olean, NY 14760. This meeting will address Empire State Development funding possibilities for the Olean community.
