South Parsonage Street in the Village of Rhinebeck is getting repaved, thanks to funding from a state Consolidated Local Streets and Highway Improvement Program (CHIPS) grant. The paving was scheduled to begin Aug. 12 and the contractor, Colarusso and Sons, expects the project to be completed within two weeks if the weather cooperates, according to a news release from the mayor’s office.
In the release, Mayor Jim Reardon said the project would stretch from East Market Street to Mill Street and include “milling, shimming, and crack sealing, followed by the placement of new blacktop.” Reardon added that the goal was to complete the project before school starts, since South Parsonage serves both school campuses.
“We are asking motorists for their cooperation while this project is underway. While there will be no road closures, traffic delays should be anticipated due to the work, and we strongly urge people to consider using alternate routes,” Reardon said.
The mayor’s office also requested that residents refrain from parking cars along the street or placing brush or garden debris along the curb during the work.
