Roadwork to impact Youngs Road traffic

AMHERST, N.Y. (WIVB) – Drivers in Amherst will face some changes on Youngs Road for about three weeks, as the highway department works on the roadway.

Milling and repaving begins August 3, and will be between Main Street and Maple Road. There will be traffic restrictions, road closures and detours during the work. It will run from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m.

There will be two phases of work. First will be between Sheridan Drive and Main Street. Southbound traffic will be allowed, other traffic will be detoured to Evans Street or Transit Road.

The second phase will include the north side of the Youngs Road intersection at Sheridan Drive, and both sides of the intersection at Maple Road. Youngs Road between Sheridan Drive and Maple Road will be closed in both directions for about three days.

Phase two will include Youngs Road north of Maple Road, and northbound traffic will be allowed. Southbound traffic will be diverted to Renaissance Drive, except local traffic to medical buildings. There will be no thru traffic allowed while work on this section is completed. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
