Front St. Gateway Project Underway, Detours Announced

Front Street Gateway - Overview
The Front Street Gateway Improvement Project will resume in April and will involve the construction of a new complete street on Front Street (Route 11) from Winding Way to Prospect Street. The project is being funded with federal, state and local funds in a teaming partnership between the City and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Office of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), and the Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery (GOSR). Specifically the project includes:
  • Fully reconstructed roadway and sidewalks
  • New sanitary sewer system
  • New storm drainage system
  • New water main and services
  • Traffic signal and signage upgrades
  • New decorative street lighting and landscaping
  • Rehabilitation of concrete flood wall
Schedule: April to December 2018
Traffic Impacts: For convenience and safety, offsite detours will be implemented for most of 2018 during working hours. The roadway will generally remain open to two way traffic on evenings and weekends.
*All local vehicle and pedestrian traffic to businesses and residences will be maintained throughout construction*
Local Coordination:
Outreach meetings will be conducted for the affected residents and business owners upon the start of 2018 construction. Regular schedule updates will be provided throughout construction.
