NYSDOT to present plans to reconstruct Route 31 in the Village of Clyde

Public Forum from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, August 21 at Clyde-Savannah School

New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) officials will hold a public information meeting on Wednesday, August 21, to discuss plans to improve Route 31 (West Genesee Street) in the village of Clyde and the town of Galen, Wayne County. The purpose of the meeting is to inform the community of the proposed improvements and to seek input on the project. DOT will be joined by Clyde village officials to provide information about the water main and sanitary sewer system project.

The meeting is open to the public and will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Clyde-Savannah Central School District, located at 215 Glasgow Street. This meeting will be an open house format and will be staffed by both NYSDOT staff and village officials. Interested individuals will have the opportunity to speak with members of the project team. No formal presentation will be given.

The project will improve the condition of the pavement, drainage system, and bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The pavement on Route 31 will be reconstructed from approximately 900 feet west of the western village limit to Sodus Street. The pavement will be milled and resurfaced from Sodus Street east to Route 414. The truck turning radii will be improved at the intersections of North Park Street and Sodus Street for eastbound traffic as well as at Sodus Street and West Genesee Street for westbound traffic. Invasive trees and trees in poor condition will be replaced. Sufficient space for bicycles and additional crosswalks will be provided.

Construction is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2015. The estimated cost for this project is $3.2 million and it will be federally and state funded.

Additionally, village officials will be present to provide information for their proposed improvements to the water main and sanitary sewer system. These improvements will be undertaken by the village prior to the highway work.

The location for the meeting is accessible to people with disabilities. A sign language interpreter will be provided if requested by August 16, 2013. Anyone who requires any other special accommodations to participate in this meeting or wishes to obtain more information about the project should contact the NYSDOT Project Manager Dan Farrelly at (585) 272-4875, or via e-mail @ daniel.farrelly@dot.ny.gov as soon as possible.
