June 2019 Street Update
The schedule for our 2019 street projects has been updated. For a description of the full scope of work, see the March update below.
Fairchild Street rehabilitation is underway. This project will included replacing about 2" of asphalt. Some road base and curb repairs are also proposed. Additional pedestrian lighting is to be provided at the Cappy Lane intersection and at Ingalls. This project will be substantially complete prior to the first day of school. Note that an intersection study for Cappy Lane and Fairchild is underway to ascertain what changes might be warranted to maintain safe vehicle and pedestrian use. This corridor will also be a primary focus for the Safe Routes to School Initiative that is due to occur this summer.
Helmsley Drive is also due to commence in mid-summer, with the understanding that the project will be substantially complete prior to the commencement of fall class at Syring.
The downtown streetscape is underway. Two-way traffic will be open during the project, but expect limited left turns and delays.
Surface maintenance on streets in the form of crack sealing may also be performed in the fall. A scope of work has not yet been developed.
Hill Road rehabilitation was submitted to the state for 'Category B' funding, but it was NOT approved.
