The installation of the seven telecom vaults is complete. Conduit is now being installed between the vaults. Concrete will be poured over the conduit to complete the duct bank. This work is in preparation for the telecommunication upgrades that property owners have opted for as part of the Commons Repair and Upgrade Project.
The contractors not only worked all day Tuesday in the snow and cold; they picked up the garbage that had been thrown over the construction fence into the work site. Thank you Vacri.
Meter pits are being installed for the 13 yard hydrants. The hydrants will provide water for the new plantings as well as for vendors.
Saw cutting the sidewalk will continue on both the north and south side of the Commons. This work will occur outside the construction fence and will not impede pedestrian flow. A new gas line will be installed by NYSEG in the area of the saw cut.
Please be aware that partial sidewalk and pedestrian crossing closings will happen from time to time during construction. There will be signage letting pedestrians know the best route to take. We apologize for any inconvenience and we thank you for your patience.
