Installation of new drilled piles for the Waverly Avenue Bridge has continued on schedule. The new piles will be used to support the necessary excavation to allow installation of the new foundation footings for the wider bridge span. The Contractor will complete the installation of piles on the Fenimore Road side of the Bridge before moving onto the Plaza Avenue approach in the coming weeks.
Evaluation of traffic conditions along the Bridge Detour Route was completed in December and final recommendations intended to mitigate travel delays during peak rush hours were shared between the Town and Village at the start of January. The recommendations include adjustment of timing for several traffic signals and modification of pavement markings on Hoyt Avenue. The Town and Village have directed contractors to complete the necessary changes that will subsequently allow for re-evaluation of traffic conditions with the new measures in place. Completion of the necessary changes and re-evaluation of traffic flow is expected within the next two week period.
