Cheektowaga officials 'may' consider no lights on the 33

Cheektowaga May Consider No Lights On The 33

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Drivers at night have been complaining about the non-working lights on a stretch of the Kensington Expressway in the town of Cheektowaga.

The Highway Superintendent told 2 On Your Side last week that the Cheektowaga Town Board was going to vote on hiring a sub-contractor to repair the underground work so that the lights can work.

However, one day before the meeting, Town Supervisor Diane Benczkowski said that no vote will take place. She wants to do more research on the original agreement, including looking at the infrastructure. 

She echoed the words of the Highway Superintendent about whether or not the lights are needed. "There's no lights on the thruway, and there's no lights on the other half of the 33, so we felt for the taxpayers, why are we paying for the lights on only half the road," Wegner said last week.
