Alternate routes are advised.

Major Road Projects in East Aurora
Significant work is underway in several areas to improve mobility on the east side of Aurora. Visit this story map to learn more.

Quincy Avenue/Gun Club Road Intersection Improvements
Construction began October 2019 on the improvement project at Quincy Avenue and Gun Club Road.

In conjunction with the E470 ramp changes, the Quincy/Gun Club Project will be making the following changes in December:
Northbound traffic coming onto the project from the south will be shifted into the final configuration. This will remove the current crossovers and should ease travel coming into the project limits.
West of the Quincy/Gun Club intersection, westbound Quincy Avenue traffic will be shifted north of the center median into its final alignment. Quincy Avenue will now function in its final configuration through the winter.
Factors contributing to the switch will include weather and the E-470 southbound off-ramp traffic signal going operational.
As dates are confirmed, the project message boards throughout the site will be updated to advise the traveling public.

More information can be found on the project website or by calling 800.394.7020 or abriggs@benesch.com.
