Our crews continue to work on Lower King St. from Greeley Ave. leading down the street towards the railroad. They are also working on N. Greeley at the intersection of King St. Traffic will be maintained from S. Greeley to King St. for night time operations.
As far as potholes & ruts, as I previously mentioned, cold weather causes the temporary fix to crumble. That’s unfortunately happening in downtown Chappaqua. With the consistent warmer weather, crews will do patch work and hopefully it will stick. The road will be repaved when all excavation is completed and new curbing is installed.
Last night the Town Board approved a change order resulting in an additional charge of $30,000. This was due to the work interruption at the beginning of the year. Con Edison was asked to stop working the last week of 2017. Unfortunately, we then could not get Con Ed to return for weeks. Our contractor could not continue their work until Con Edison finally returned to remove an existing gas line.
A section of the commuter parking area at the rear of Pizza Station/Citi Bank building was initially planned to be closed next week (March 5 – March 9). That work is being rescheduled. It will most likely take place in 3 weeks. The reason for the closure (most likely in 3 weeks) is that ELQ will be receiving delivery of a 30 ton vortex drainage structure. It will need to be immediately installed upon its arrival. A crane will be on site to take the structure from the wide bed truck to the excavated pit in the parking area behind Pizza Station and Dunkin Donuts. The installation will require temporary parking suspension in both parallel rows of the three hour parking area immediately behind Pizza Station to Citibank. Some non-resident spots (about 10) will also be impacted as that second access row will be blocked off. We will advise residents when this delivery and parking closure will take place.
