TROY, NY – The City of Troy Department of Public Works (DPW) is putting your tax dollars to work, issuing the week's weather-contingent schedule for city infrastructure improvement projects.
"Maintaining our roadways is maintaining essential emergency and economic infrastructure, and improves the quality of life experienced by community members of all abilities," said Troy Mayor Wm. Patrick Madden. "As always, my thanks go to the workers of our Department of Public Works, who put themselves in harm's way and make themselves available to respond to emergencies at all hours to ensure our community can dependably rely on safe infrastructure."
DPW announced a preliminary, weather-dependent schedule for paving projects planned for early next week:
4th Ave between 114th St – 118th St
115th St between 1st Ave – 9th Ave
114th St between 5th Ave – Gurley Ave
Gurley Ave between 9th Ave - 114th St
9th Ave between 114th St - 115th St
113th St between 3rd Ave – 9th Ave
5th Ave between 106th St - 110th St
112th St between 6th Ave – 9th Ave
109th St between 7th Ave - 8th Ave
8th Ave between 109th St – 110th St
8th Ave between 110th St – 115th St
Milling is a process that removes a portion of the asphalt surface in preparation for future repaving. Paving results in a smooth road surface and safer driving conditions. Due to the nature of the materials involved in roadwork and the conditions needed for proper setting, these projects are highly weather-sensitive and thus this schedule is weather-contingent and subject to change. Work generally begins at 6AM unless noted otherwise.
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.
