TROY, NY – The City of Troy Department of Public Works (DPW) is putting your tax dollars to work, issuing this week's weather-contingent schedule for milling and paving projects to improve our roadways.
"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."
This week's schedule is as follows:
Milling: Broadway between 3rd St & River St
Milling: 2nd St between State St & River St
Milling is a process that removes a portion of the asphalt surface in preparation for future repaving. Paving results in a smooth road surface and safer driving conditions. 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.
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.
