TROY, N.Y. – Troy's Department of Public Works announced that sidewalk and curb replacement work will continue along 4th Street this summer, along the west side of 4th Street at Adams Street. One-way north bound traffic will be maintained on 4th Street. Residents and businesses are asked to park on the opposite side of the street or on side streets. Upon completion of work on one side of the street, parking restrictions and the designated work zone will then move to the other side of the street as necessary to complete work started last year.
WHERE: 4th Street (Adams Street to Division Street)
WHEN: This week through the end of October 2023
WHAT: Removing existing and installing new sidewalks, curbs, lighting, tree plantings, utility upgrades and related work.
WHY: The work is part of a federally-funded Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) project to improve the “quality of life” and “mobility” for Troy residents and families living in this South Central /Little Italy Neighborhood. This project continues the work already completed last year in South Troy, along 4th Street (Adams St. to Division Street.).
Construction work will take place on one side of the street at a time. Parking restrictions will be posted on the designated construction side of 4th Street to create a work zone area in the parking lane.
Access to homes and businesses will be maintained during construction. Pedestrians will be directed to use existing available sidewalks along the opposite side of the street from the construction area. The bus stop in the designated work zone block will temporarily not be available 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.
