Release Date: January 19, 2017
Some residents have asked about the construction work on South Broadway on Route 9 and Route 119 in Tarrytown. This information hopefully will be of interest. Glad that the work on Route 9 is almost complete. Have received some quality of life complaints during the construction.
ROUTES 9 AND 119 CONSTRUCHON UPDATE
The construction work on Route 9 (South Broadway) and Route 119 is a Westchester County
project to install a sani tary sewer force main which ultimately connects to a transmission system
to the Yonkers Wastewater Treatment Plant. According to information provided by the
engineering inspector working for the County on the project, the following time frames are
associated with the construction project.
Time frame for the one-lane restriction on Route 9. The work on Route 9 that has created the
need to restrict traffic to one-lane is anticipated to be completed by January 20, 2017. Aller this
date, traffic should retum to one-lane in each direction as opposed to only one total lane
Time frame for construction on Route 9. The contructor will be performing what is known as
hydrostatic testing on the sanitary sewer force main around January 30, 2017. Should there be no
issues evidenced by the testing, the contractor will be installing concrete pavement in the area of
the forcemain installation on Route 9. The final asphalt top coat paving will not occur until the
asphalt plants open in the Spring (mid-March).
Time frame for construction on Route 119. The contructor originally planned to be completed on
Route 119 in April 2017. However, the contractor is developing a plan to work double shifts to
reduce the time frame to complete this component by the end of February 2017. As noted for
Route 9, the final top coat paving will not occur until the asphalt plants open in Spring.
