The 2016 Road Improvement Project

The largest and most comprehensive road improvement project in the last 25 years has begun. The road improvement project includes approximately two miles or 10,905 linear feet of roadway. Roads in the base project total 8,985 linear feet and roads in the add/alternatives project total 1,920 linear feet. The chart below outlines the roads included in this project. Road selections were based on a road grading analysis conducted by Village Engineers Dvirka & Bartilucci.

The cost of this project is estimated at $2.2 million which includes design, bid documents, plans, and asphalt pavement replacement and may include driveway aprons, sidewalks, and concrete curb replacements as needed to meet the new street grade. The Village will borrow up to $1.5 million to help fund this project and the Board is confident that the Village will maintain its favorable AA+ credit rating which will help the Village secure a lower interest rate. The design work is just beginning and, upon completion, bids solicitations will be issued. Although weather plays a big role, road construction will begin late Spring and continue to Summer. Information on this project and its progress will continue to be provided at Board Meetings, in future Newsletters, on the Village website, and in the local newspapers.

Residents living on impacted streets will be notified in advance of the construction starting and parking instructions will be provided. Please be extra cautious when driving through the Village during the road construction. Your safety is always a top priority. If you have questions or want further information, please call DPW Supt. Tom Gannon at (516) 354-0064.

Village gets hit again, this time by a Nor'easter

 

A one, two punch

 

While many resident's are asking when they will get their power back, some resident's have asked why the Village didn't plow.

Well, we can't answer the power question as that is a LIPA matter, there are actually several explanations why the Village did not plow our streets last night and this morning, so we'll provide you with a few. 

As most people have seen, the roads were like an obstacle courses as most were impassable due to the low hanging tree branches that still had leaves with very heavy snow on the branches.

The roads were also impassable due to low hanging electrical wires and other wires that provide services like FIOS and Cablevision.

The DPW crews were assigned to clear fallen branches that blocked roadways to ensure that emergency vehicles can access the streets, so as a result, they weren't available to operate the plows

Nearly every block in the Village had at least one large branch that would have damaged the plows if they made contact

The weather forecast was for temperatures to rise, so we had no concerns of freezing roadways.

And the list does go on, but we're hopeful you can get a sense of what we were thinking about in our decision making process.

The Village of New Hyde Park completes the first phase of their Emergency Post Storm Operations (Cleanup)

 

The Village of New Hyde Park completed on Sunday the first phase of our Emergency Post Strom Operations (Cleanup).  In addition, there are no locations in the village that would present an obstacle for LIPA, National Grid, Verizion, Water Authority, or Cablevision from completing their repair and restoration activity. 

 

On Monday, the village began the second phase, (Assess and Correct Non Emergent Storm Related Damage) which will include evaluation of damaged trees and branches, removal of debris on village property and address other damage to village property (street lamps, street signs, etc.)  Concurrently, we will also begin phase three (Repair and Reconstruction).  This will include curb and sidewalk replacement along with some road repairs. 

 

Mayor Dan Petruccio and the Village Board have been so grateful to the employees of the Department of Public Work for their tireless efforts to restore the village.  However, our work is not done as we continue to pressure LIPA to complete their work and provide electrical power to all of our residents.  We also would like to thank our resident’s for their patience and understanding as we continue to work in restoring our village.

 

• Worst locations for utility equipment (current) – Ingraham Lane and Whittier Ave, 500 and 600 blocks of South 9th Street, 3rd Avenue, 10 block of North 10th Street

 

• Many areas of the Village remain without power. 

·    Sanitation collections will be on a regular schedule.  No collection on Monday, November 12th in observance of Veteran's Day.

·     Regular Curbside Leaf Collection has been suspended until further notice
