The final coat of asphalt will be put on next summer, in June 2016, and Village officials say that this gives the area a chance to settle and will result in a better product in the end.
“What we plan is to finish the project 100 percent next year, meaning milling and paving” said Jason Frazier, Street Superintendent for the Village of Geneseo. “From Ward to Center will be paved. Court Street will be done, Bank Street we’re still on the fence. For the soil remediation we are digging seven feet deep, so letting it freeze-thaw, we will get a better product in the end.”
Nardozzi Paving and Construction has replaced and restored 2,300 feet of water main and 285 feet of sewer lines over this summer, in some cases removing and replacing pipes that are 100 years old.
However, Mayor Richard Hatheway’s stated enduring purpose of the project lives on in the minds of citizens: Although construction has proposed inconveniences, the replacement of 2,300 feet of an outdated municipal water main and 285 feet of sewer lines will make Main Street look nicer, plain and simple.
There is still some active construction on Bank Street.
