JAMESTOWN – With warmer weather finally here, local highway departments will begin the 2014 road and street construction season. In the city of Jamestown, a total of 90 infrastructure and facility improvement by the city public works department are scheduled to take place.
- LIST OF 2014 STREET, ROAD AND INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS
According to Jamestown Mayor Sam Teresi, this year’s projects are all designed to be completed by the end of the summer/fall season – depending of course, on the weather, final funding availability and the cost of construction material and fuel.
The mayor says many of the construction projects are due in large part to funding from the New York State CHIPS fund, as well as from federal resources obtained by the city’s Department of Development. Funding also came this year through more than $80,000 in emergency aid from the state that was provided due to this year’s extremely harsh winter weather.
Some of the projects being focused on this year include 5th Street, Camp Street, Lakeview Ave. and Outlet Ave. In addition, the city will also focus on expanding the Riverwalk area with Phase V and Phase VI of that project, as well as finalizing Veteran’s Park on West Third St.
