Pulteney St. Reconstruction Begins Feb. 1

Pulteney_Winter_2The City of Geneva will begin its Pulteney Street reconstruction project on Wednesday, Feb. 1, during which sections of the road will have restricted access as crews work between Jay and Hamilton streets. The initial roadwork will involve a street-cutting machine moving north from Jay Street.

The Pulteney Street project will involve installing new water mains, hydrants, valves and services, new storm sewers and catch basins; sanitary sewers, manholes and service laterals; and complete road reconstruction, including installation of new granite curbs and concrete sidewalks. The construction plans also include wider sidewalks, raised crosswalks and “pull-over zones” for cars.

The next phase of the project is anticipated to begin on Monday, Feb. 6, as crews begin installing an 8-inch water main on the east side of Pulteney Street. Sections of Pulteney Street between Hamilton and Jay streets will be closed for the day, and as the project moves north various sections of Pulteney will be closed each day.

Throughout the reconstruction project, sections of Pulteney Street and St. Clair Street will be closed to daytime traffic and detours will be in place. Access to driveways and sidewalks will be limited surrounding the immediate work zone during the day.

The water main installation is anticipated to be completed by Wednesday, March 1. The remainder of the project should be completed by mid-August.

Project updates will be shared as necessary as work progresses.
