Next phase of Congress St. improvements begin Monday, April 2
March 29, 2012
The next phase of infrastructure improvement work is scheduled to begin on upper Congress Street on Monday, April 2. Much-needed repairs and upgrades along Congress Street will take place between 11th Street and Pawling Avenue during the 2012 construction season.
In addition to providing street paving, new sidewalks, and new lighting, the City of Troy will also replace the storm and sanitary sewer systems and replace the water line, which currently exists within the upper Congress Street Corridor. In addition, new traffic signals, new highway signage, new street lighting, as well as the completion and/or replacement of retaining walls will also be undertaken.
It is anticipated that residents on upper Congress Street will experience some inconvenience or service interruption during construction. However, every reasonable effort will be taken to minimize disruption of services. Traffic on Congress Street will be detoured during some part of the rehabilitation work.
The construction on upper Congress Street builds on the extensive rehabilitation work that was conducted in 2010 and 2011 on Congress and Ferry Streets near the CityStation complex.
Beginning Monday April 2, at 6 a.m., a detour closing Congress Street to traffic from 8th Street to 15th Street will be put in place. Traffic traveling west down Congress Street will be re-routed over 15th Street to People’s Avenue and back down to 8th Street. The reverse will be in effect for vehicles traveling east up Ferry Street. They will be sent over 8th Street to People’s Avenue to 15th Street and back to Congress. Emergency vehicle access will be maintained at all times. We anticipate the detour to be in place for approximately 10 weeks. County Emergency Services have been notified.
