TROY, NY (June 3, 2021) – City officials have issued a construction advisory for sidewalk and curb replacement work beginning this week in the South Central and Little Italy neighborhoods. Construction crews will be removing existing and installing new sidewalks, curbs, lighting, tree plantings, utility upgrades and related work beginning on 4th Street between Ida and Adams Streets, followed by 3rd Street (Adams to Ida Street).
The work is part of a federally-funded Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, administered by Troy’s Department of Housing & Community Development. The latest phase of the project continues northward, adding to work already completed last year in South Troy along 4th Street (Jackson St. to Canal Avenue). Work is scheduled to continue through October 2021.
Mayor Madden said, “Federal assistance for improvements like the South Central/Little Italy Neighborhood Reinvestment Project allows the City to continue updating critical pedestrian infrastructure, helping to enhance quality of life and improve mobility for Troy residents of all ages and abilities. We thank residents, families, and business owners for their patience and cooperation while this important work continues through the spring, summer, and fall.”
Construction work will take place on one side of the street at a time. Parking restrictions will be posted on the designated construction side of 4th Street to create a work zone area in the parking lane. One-way north bound traffic will be maintained on 4th Street. Residents and businesses are asked to park on the opposite side of the street or on side streets. Upon completion of work on one side of the street, parking restrictions and the designated work zone will then move to the other side of the street. National Grid is currently working on the block of 4th Street (Jefferson St. to Adams St.) replacing gas mains and service lines.
Access to homes and businesses will be maintained during construction. Pedestrians will be directed to use existing available sidewalks along the opposite side of the street from the construction area. The bus stop in the designated work zone block will temporarily not be available for use. Bus riders are requested to use the next available bus stop to the north or to the south of the designated work zone.
Motorists are asked to reduce vehicle speeds in the construction zone area, observe all posted traffic restrictions, and watch for flaggers and equipment operating in the street right of way areas to protect the safety of workers.
