CITY PAVES MORE STREETS THANKS TO MORE FUNDING IN 2021
GLENS FALLS – City crews working with paving contractors paved and will pave more streets during the 2021 road resurfacing season compared to previous years, thanks to enhanced state funding.
In a typical year, the city receives between $400,000 and $600,000 from the Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program (CHIPS) from New York State. In 2021, CHIPS funding increased by $800,000. The increased funding paved the way for the city to resurface more than double the number of streets in 2021 compared to a typical year.
In addition to a major resurfacing project on Dix Avenue, in August, crews paved the Glens Falls Tech Park road, Lawrence, Maple, Leonard, Center, and Madison streets, Windy Ridge, Halsey Place, Hartman Place and Auburn Place.
In September, paving work will continue as follows:
- Wednesday, Sept. 1- pave Third Street
- Thursday and Friday, Sept. 2 and 3 – pave West Tremont and East Tremont streets and Horicon Avenue.
- Tuesday through Friday, September 7 to 10, mill and pave Glen Street.
- Friday, September 10, mill Thomson Avenue, Goodwin and East Notre Dame streets.
- Monday, September 13, mill West Notre Dame Street.
- Tuesday, September 14, mill Montcalm Street and pave Thomson Avenue, Goodwin and East Notre Dame Streets.
- Wednesday, September 15, mill Oakland Avenue and pave West Notre Dame Street.
- Thursday, September 16, mill Sierra Street and pave Montcalm Street.
- Friday, September 17, pave Oakland Avenue.
- Monday, September 20, pave Sierra Street.
As with all road resurfacing projects, this work is highly dependent on the weather. Motorists should avoid these streets during paving work and obey all traffic control and directional signs.
