UPDATED: Traffic Advisory Issued for Next Round of Roadway Improvement Work

All work is weather dependent, and subject to change.

The work is part of the City’s annual citywide paving program to rebuild roads and improve pedestrian safety in neighborhoods across Troy. Earlier this year, Mayor Madden announced a $10M investment to pave a record 12.5 miles of Troy roads during the next 12 months.

Mayor Madden said, “We are excited to see the next round of roadway improvement work begin in multiple neighborhoods next week. Cooperation from residents is critical to ensure a safe work zone for paving crews engaged in milling and paving work. I thank our Engineering Department staff who are coordinating the annual paving program to improve street conditions throughout our community.”

Deputy Mayor Chris Nolin said, “The support from New York State, Governor Hochul and our state representatives for local roadway improvement efforts has been critical to repair Troy roads and increase pedestrian safety. This latest round of milling and paving work will continue our multi-year, historic investment in our city’s roads and transportation infrastructure, and I extend my thanks to the City Engineering Department for their work to move the annual paving program forward this summer.”

The upcoming roadway improvement work schedule is as follows:

Beginning 6 a.m., Monday, July 11th, crews will be milling:

  • Hutton Street between 10th Street – 11th Street
  • 5th Avenue between Rensselaer Street and North Street

Beginning 6 a.m., Tuesday, July 12th, crews will be milling: 

  • Mill Street between Campbell Avenue – Burden Avenue
