History:



NY 278 had two previous short lived alignments in Erie County during most of the 1930s. The original, in the towns of Boston and Holland via what is now Erie CRs 222 and 240 with a short overlap with NY 240, and later along present day NY 187 and a portion of US 20 between West Seneca and Depew. The current designation was assigned in 1938.
Recommendation: Decommission NY 278 to eliminate duplication with I-278 in New York City.
