North Union Detour Update

May 21, 2015—Olean—Due to the construction on North Union Street (Route 16) the intersection between Main Street and North Union Street has been closed. For cars traveling from North Olean to Boardmanville the detour is: North First Street to a left turn onto Sullivan Street; a left turn from Sullivan Street onto North Union Street; a right turn from North Union Street onto Delaware Avenue; a left turn from Delaware Avenue onto North Barry Street. North Barry Street ends at Main Street. This detour will be in place until further notice.

“The City’s Emergency Services take daily notice of the changes to the traffic patterns and adapt their routes as necessary,” Mayor Aiello said. “The closure of the upper end of North Union Street has been difficult for all of us and I appreciate the patience of Olean’s residents as we endure this construction project.”

Mayor Aiello added, “Please remember that there many merchants on North Union Street (Route 16) that need our continued support. There is, unfortunately, no parking in front of the establishments in the construction zone, but there are places to park in the vicinity. Please come on down, see the construction and visit your favorite merchant or restaurant.”
