RIDGEWAY – Construction started on Monday for Water District. No. 14. Sergi Construction of East Aurora is the contractor for the project.

The Town Board on Oct. 21 accepted Sergi’s bid to construct the water district for $735,964. The district serves about 30 homes and covers about 4 miles or 19,000 linear feet. It includes property along Culvert Road, between Route 104 and Portage Road, and Porter Road, from Culvert Road to Knowlesville Road.

The town has been approved for funding through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development for the project. Rural Development approved a $334,000 loan and $720,000 grant for the project.

Construction is weather dependent. John Olinger, the town highway superintendent, said the district will be subject to Health Department tests after construction. He is hopeful the district will be in service by March.
