TROY, NY – Mayor Patrick Madden today announced the start of Phase Three of sidewalk and curb improvements in Troy’s historic Lansingburgh neighborhood. The effort is a federally-funded, Community Development Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, administered by the City’s Department of Housing & Community Development to repair city sidewalks and street curbs in targeted neighborhoods.
Mayor Madden said, “Improving our curbs and sidewalks is an essential part of our City’s efforts to improve mobility for Troy residents of all ages and abilities and enhance the quality of life in our community. With assistance from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development the City can undertake these valuable neighborhood improvements for the benefit of families, residents and business owners in our community. We thank the public for their patience while this important work is underway.”
City officials have issued a construction advisory for 112th Street associated with Phase Three of the Lansingburgh Neighborhood Reinvestment Project. Beginning Monday, September 24, parking on 112th Street between 2nd Avenue and 6th Avenue will be prohibited from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. for the replacement of sidewalks, curbs and related work. Beginning Monday, September 24, the City will commence work on the reconstruction of sidewalks and curbs on 112th Street and 2nd Avenue. Work will proceed eastward on 112th Street to 6th Avenue.
The overall project will include work on both sides of 112th Street and may include portions of adjacent side streets. The project is expected to continue through October 2018.
Motorists are asked observe all posted parking restrictions in order to accommodate sidewalk and curb construction work, and allow for one lane of construction and two-way traffic. Motorists are also asked to reduce speeds in the work zone and watch for flaggers & equipment operating in the public right of way. Pedestrians will be directed to use available sidewalks on 112th Street during construction.
Work may also include street tree trimming and planting, utility strip work, new street light foundations and conduit, catch basin and drainage structure repairs, and other related work. This is the third year of streetscape improvements in Lansingburgh which is part of the implementation of Troy’s 5-Year Consolidated Plan. Phase Two of the project was conducted in 2017 on 2nd Avenue from 111th to 114th Street.
