High traffic drove a change

I'm sure I am not the first to comment on the wonderful photo of the arched trees that lined Bennett Road in the days of old, shown above. The caption from Aug. 17 was mistaken in calling this Route 60. At that time, Route 60 came out of Laona to Liberty Street to Water Street and thence down Central Avenue, ending at Route 5. The change came about because of complaints of the increased traffic coming through the heart of Fredonia and Dunkirk.
