Traffic Advisory: 120th Street Between 1st and 2nd Avenues Closed Next Week
TROY, NY (Feb 24) – Department of Public Utilities officials have announced road closures related to a storm water separation project will occur on 120th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues beginning on Tuesday, February 28 through Friday, March 10.
Troy continues to address storm water/sewage separation as required by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. The street closure is necessary to complete the work as quickly and safely as possible.
It is estimated that the separation of storm water from sewage lines will eliminate more than one million gallons of sewage from entering the Hudson River each year. Troy's storm water separation project is funded through developer investments; in this case redevelopment of the Lion Factory into housing will support this project.
