Preliminary work has begun with real construction beginning April 13 on a stretch of Peterboro Street. Yesterday Canastota village administrator Larry Carpenter met with representatives from the Onondaga County Water Authority and the state Department of Transportation to coordinate activities.
On Monday OCWA will begin replacing water lines along Peterboro Street from Lewis Street north about 430 feet, or just past Elm Street. Carpenter said OCWA will dig, replace the line and the laterals. A six-inch binder of blacktop will be laid until paving can be done in August. The work is expected to be complete by the time school resumes on April 20.
In the meantime, motorists should expect delays as traffic will be reduced to one lane. Carpenter suggests taking an alternate route.
Residents are reminded that construction at the intersection of Roberts and Peterboro Street will begin in July. The DOT will widen Peterboro Street and install a light at that intersection.
The DOT also plans to pave Peterboro Street beginning in August. Carpenter said the village hopes it will be paved from the Thruway interchange to Route 5.
