TROY, NY – Mayor Patrick Madden today announced excavation work will begin this week for a sewer separation project on Burdett Avenue in the City of Troy. The project is part of the Albany Pool Communities’ Combined Sewer Overflow Long-Term Control Plan, a regional effort involving local communities in cooperation with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation aimed at reducing combined sewer overflow discharges into the Hudson River and improve water quality.
Mayor Madden said, “The Collar City continues to make the necessary investments in our sewer infrastructure network as part of our commitment with neighboring Capital Region communities to improve the health of our city and the Hudson River ecosystem. We thank our residents and business owners for their patience while this important work is underway.”
City officials have issued a traffic advisory for Burdett Avenue due to the scheduled sewer infrastructure work conducted by the Department of Public Utilities. Beginning Tuesday, July 17, sections of roadway in the vicinity of the Burdett Avenue and Detroit Avenue intersection will be subject to traffic pattern changes and parking restrictions. Work is expected to continue for approximately 4-6 weeks. Motorists are asked to use caution while traveling through work zones to ensure the safety of workers. Local emergency services have been notified of the traffic restrictions.
