North Tonawanda Mayor Arthur Pappas announced the following on Wednesday:
Per New York State Executive Order 202.6 issued March 27th, 2020, non-essential construction projects throughout the State are required to shut down. The Downtown Placemaking project, which began on March 24th, falls under this requirement.
The project began with the movement of water lines and fire hydrants. This work, as essential to public health and safety, was continued and completed on March 31. The contractor will demobilize and remove all equipment, signage, and traffic safety measures by the end of work on March 31. The normal traffic pattern will return for Main, Webster, Tremont, and Goundry streets.
The contractor will be placing concrete barriers around the new fire hydrants to protect them from vehicular traffic. The Department of Public Works will be installing temporary asphalt in the disturbed areas along the west side of Webster Street. This work is essential for public safety and will be completed by April 3.
