TROY, N.Y. – Troy's Department of Public Utilities (DPU) announced that repair work on water mains will impact South Troy and downtown thoroughfares. After the repairs, road will be milled, backfilled and paved.
DPU's work is weather contingent and subject to change, but the following is planned for early next week:
- DPU's work on River Street will take place on Monday, July 31 from 4AM to noon.
- DPU will then work at the intersection of 4th Street and Polk Street on Tuesday, August 1 from 4AM to noon.
Roads will not be fully closed but motorists should expect delays and partial closures. Alternate routes are recommended.
Pedestrians will be directed to use existing available sidewalks along the opposite side of the street from the construction area.
Bus stops in the designated work zone will be temporarily unavailable for use. Bus riders are requested to use the next available bus stop to the north or to the south of the designated work zone.
Motorists are asked to “slow down” and reduce vehicle speeds in the construction zone area, observe all posted traffic restrictions, and watch for flaggers and equipment operating in the street right of way areas. Motorists accustomed to street parking in these neighborhoods are encouraged to mind posted parking restrictions to avoid costly fines and towing. Commuters should expect to encounter roadwork in the area and are encouraged to seek alternate routes of travel if possible.
