North Street And Route 20 Bridge Projects Outlined

The Village of West Winfield Board met Monday evening to discuss new business.


The meeting began with a public hearing where the team from MJ Engineering and the New York State Department of Transportation discussed the North Street Rehab project and Route 20 Bridge Replacement.


The work will be done within the specified boundary and no property acquisitions are required to complete the project. No utility poles or fire hydrants are going to be displaced either.


There is a projected five to six week window Route 20 will be closed. There was a discussion about the aesthetic intent to keep the project on theme with the current feel of the park. The creek in the park will temporarily need to be pumped through.


Detours are being discussed but it's expected the previous detour route will be set up.


Nine fire calls were answered by the West Winfield Fire Department in February. Twenty-three ambulance calls were answered.


Five more physicals of department members are completed and the Department is waiting for only two more physicals to be completed.


Boardmember Sandy Smith said the chairlift for Bisby Hall has been selected. A handicap parking spot is being installed out front of Bisby Hall as well.


The grant money is expected to be received by April 1. The railings are ready to be installed and have been offered to be installed before payment is made.


Smith said she's going to be in contact with the DOT to cut the curbs in front of Bisby so they are more wheelchair accessible.


Boardmember Carl Wheat said there are more members joining the Clean Energy committee. Two meters are going to be approved for the Village but the rest of the requested meter locations were denied….
