Sidewalk replacement in progress on 11th St

Back To Front Page


Phase I of the South 11th Street re-pave has begun, with the removal of 1,300 feet of sidewalk between the rear entrance of Westchester Intermediate School and Park Ave.

So Chesterton Street Commissioner John Schnadenberg reported at Monday night’s meeting of the Town Council.

The machinery being used to remove the old sidewalk is being staged in the northbound lane of South 11th Street, Schnadenberg noted, and all traffic has been shunted into the southbound lane, with a flagger on duty.

Best, however, to avoid South 11th Street if possible.

Schnadenberg believes the new sidewalk will be poured sometime next week.

Phase II of the project will involve the installation of a stormwater drain at the intersection of South 11th Street and Crab Tree Lane. Then the re-pave proper will commence, Schnadenberg said.

The project--with a contract price of $279,542.25--is one of six this season being partially funded by a 50/50 Community Crossings state infrastructure grant. Contractor: Rieth-Riley Construction Company.
