Yes.

If I go left from the thruway and go left on Rt 20, take a left on S Roberts, right on Urban, then left on Middle I can avoid town completely.

The left on 20 threw me off at first since it’s the wrong way towards purina from the fredonia exit, but would be correct if you were using the silver creek exit. I see what you’re doing though. Lol, don’t really know what to say, sorry.

Yeah, I got what you are doing. Just don’t know what to say and not sound like a jerk. Dunkirk is a blip. If you’ve been tooling around the northeast, Dunkirk should be a piece of cake. Downtown is 10 blocks, maybe. I could ride my bike from the lake to outside of town in ten minutes as a kid. I was running route 5 to 60 and on to Jamestown my first week in cdl school. You are panicking, man. That route you’re looking at is not even the first two ways in I’d go. Maybe not even my top four depending on if you are coming from buffalo or Erie. It’s not downtown Chicago, or buffalo, or even Jamestown. Heck, tiny olean is even worse than Dunkirk. Just be cool, man, you’ve done worse. Route 60 and route 5 are good.

Andhe, it may not be the normal road, but last time I sat for 15 minutes waiting to make a left to leave Dunkirk. I was trying to avoid that.
