Road Closure Schedule - Troy Transmission Main Replacement

Dear Residents,

As many of you are aware, in January of 2016 the City of Troy experienced a large water main break in the vicinity of 125th Street and 5th Avenue. Thanks to the professionalism of our Public Utilities staff, the line was quickly isolated and repairs were completed in less than a week. Prior to this main break, the city had begun the process of obtaining state funding for the replacement of this line. Last summer, the city was awarded a grant and financing which fully funds the replacement of the water main.

This project will replace the current 33 inch riveted steel line with a higher-capacity 36 inch ductile iron line. Due to the size of the new water line and the depth of the excavation road closures will be required. Every attempt will be made to ensure local traffic (immediate residents on impacted blocks) will be able to access the front of their houses and properties where possible. The administration will be working closely with emergency services, CDTA and local school districts to ensure that any service interruption is limited.

Work to replace the new water line will start on 121st and 3rd Avenue and continue to 6th Avenue. The line will initiate on 5th Avenue and continue north to 125th Street and then continue up Northern Drive where it will terminate at the entrance to Corliss Park. Please see the attached map showing the location of the new line and the tentative work schedule.

This replacement project is scheduled to begin Monday, March 27. A link will be added to the City of Troy website – www.troyny.gov – to provide updates to any changes in the project. The web page will be updated weekly. For other general questions please contact the Department of Public Utilities at (518) 237-0241 and a message will be taken so the appropriate person can respond.

Thank you for your patience throughout this project as it is a start of a much needed infrastructure replacement that will ensure the City of Troy can continue to provide clean, quality drinking water for generations to come.

Patrick Madden

Mayor, City of Troy
