CANAJOHARIE - A major street repair project in the village is on track to be completed by the end of May.
The project includes new curbing, sidewalks, infrastructure repair and new signs on Erie Boulevard, Church Street and Main Street in the village, according to Mayor Francis Avery.
In addition, lighting is being installed at the parking lot of the village marina.

"The lighting is being installed so it can be used as a real parking lot," Avery said.
The project is being coordinated by the state Department of Transportation, he said.
The other project is being financed through a $650,000 grant through the office of Sen. Hugh T. Farley, R-Niskayuna. Wagner Square, where the village's pedestal light is located, is being updated, Avery said. The cobblestone is being removed and the area will be repaved, he said. New curbs, sidewalks and lighting are being installed.
In addition, lining is being installed in all the storm drains, Avery said.
"The storm drains have all been cleaned and photographed," he said. "We're putting in a lining that should be good for 50 to 75 years. The lining is not invasive."
The completion date for that project is July 1, Avery said.
Officials from the state DOT could not be reached for comment.
