Second phase of sidewalk project underway in downtown

The second phase of a downtown sidewalk improvement project is underway in Downtown Troy and will affect some parking for up to five weeks.

“The City of Troy would like to inform the public that the construction on the TAP 2017 Downtown Sidewalks Phase II project along South Three Notch Street between Church Street and Love Street has started,” said Melissa Sanders, Planning and Zoning Administrator.

The work will create some adjustments for traffic flow.

“The contractor plans to keep two lane traffic open along South Three Notch during this portion of the project by utilizing the parallel parking,” Sanders said. “For safety and equipment location purposes, during construction along this portion of South Three Notch Street, the parallel parking on the western side of this portion of South Three Notch Street will be closed for parking.”

Also, during construction on the western side of this portion of South Three Notch Street, the contractor will close parallel parking along this portion of South Three Notch.   During construction on the eastern side of South Three Notch phase of the project, the contractor will shift lanes to the west using the parallel parking along this portion of South Three Notch as the south bound lane of traffic.   

This portion of TAP 2017 Downtown Sidewalks Phase II project along South Three Notch Street is anticipated to last 4 to 5 weeks.

“Motorists are asked to use caution and mind traffic signs and construction workers in this area during this construction project,” Sanders said. “The contractor plans to keep pedestrian access to the adjacent businesses open. Please continue to watch for pedestrians and slow-moving vehicles. We thank you for your patience during this project as we work hard to improve your city.”
