Mayor Madden: Progress Made on Campbell Avenue Repairs

TROY, NYMayor Patrick Madden today announced that roadway repair operations on Campbell Avenue are nearing completion. Department of Public Utilities is currently backfilling the excavated section of roadway impacted by the collapse of a sewer line which occurred during the early morning of Sunday, February 21.

“Under trying conditions, the Department of Public Utilities continues to make great progress in the repair of the affected section of Campbell Avenue,” said Mayor Patrick Madden. “I want to recognize and thank the entire Troy City Council, particularly Councilman John Donohue, for their cooperation and input on reducing the impact of repair operations on the surrounding communities and local businesses, and I ask for residents’ and commuters’ continued patience as we look ahead to the eventual reopening of Campbell Avenue.”

In an effort to avoid localized depressions within the excavation site, Department of Public Utilities will be excavating additional sections of roadway that were undermined during last month’s heavy rain and severe weather which compromised soil conditions in the work site.

No estimate is yet available on when Campbell Avenue will reopen to regular traffic. Traffic detours at Donegal and Sherman Avenues remain in place as repair work continues. There is no thru-traffic on Campbell Avenue between Sherman and Donegal Avenues; eastbound traffic on Campbell Avenue will detour at Sherman Avenue, and westbound traffic will detour at Donegal Avenue. Troy Police Department traffic & patrol units are continuing to operate on the detour route. Businesses in the immediate area are open and accessible. Residential traffic is permitted beyond traffic detour at Sherman Avenue.

No residents or businesses are without sewer or water services. This repair work is not connected to the 2012 failure of a sewer line on Campbell Avenue.
