East Greenbush CSD has been informed that the Town of East Greenbush sidewalk construction and New York State paving of Route 151 are near completion.
Paving will take place the next 2-3 days and uninterrupted traffic patterns are expected the week of October 16. The sidewalk contractors are doing final touch-ups, and expect it to be open to pedestrians on October 23 pending DOT approval.
“I am pleased that these important upgrades to Luther Road will be completed soon,” said Superintendent Jeff Simons. “The new sidewalk will make our students who walk to school, as well as, the East Greenbush Library or the YMCA much safer. I thank the community for its patience and the contractors for their cooperation in balancing the construction with our school operations.”
Students, staff and parents driving to Columbia High School are encouraged to leave earlier than normal to ensure they arrive to school on time. The construction crews will maintain two-lane traffic until 7:30 a.m. and it will be restored at 1:45 p.m. to accommodate school arrival and dismissal.
