Two streets set for reconstruction

As published in The Erin Advocate

Town Council has approved a $257,301 bid from Steed and Evans Limited for the reconstruction of Water Street and Waterford Drive in Erin village.

Road Superintendent Larry Van Wyck said the work would start soon and take about three weeks.

Up to $300,000 had been allocated in the 2014 capital budget for the project, which will include removal, regrading and repaving of the road surface, and replacement of the asphalt gutters with concrete curbs.

Driveway entrances and areas behind the curbs will be restored to match the new roadway. Notices will be delivered to area residents in advance of construction.

No water supply upgrades are needed along these roads. If traditional sewer service were eventually to be provided, one half of the surface would need to be dug up.
