***UPDATED DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER***
TROY, N.Y. – Due to inclement weather, the City of Troy Department of Public Works (DPW) is issuing an updated road work schedule for the week of September 11.
"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 the following preliminary, weather-dependent schedule for milling projects:
• 5th Ave between Hoosick St – Rensselaer St
• Vanderheyden St between 6th Ave – 5th Ave
• Rensselaer St between 6th Ave - River St
• N. 1st St between Jay St – North St
• Hutton St between 8th St – 10th St
• Hutton St between 11th St - 17th St
• 16th St between Hoosick St – Jacob St
• 17th St between Hoosick St – Eagle St
• Eagle St between 17th St – Burdett Ave
• Tibbits Ave between Orchard Ave – Burdett Ave
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 again.
Paving results in a smooth road surface and safer driving conditions. Milling is a process that removes a portion of the asphalt surface in preparation for future repaving.
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.
