Flood Resilience Project - 3rd to Tremont

The flood resilience project along and adjacent to River Dr between 3rd St and Tremont is moving right along. Beginning February 19, River Dr will be reduced to one lane in each direction between 3rd St and Oneida. Motorists should be aware the lane reduction will come with a restriction – no left hand turns from east or westbound lanes. This is to ensure traffic movement. Plan your route accordingly to access your favorite destinations along this stretch.

This part of the project will install new storm sewer lines and valves. Lane reductions are expected to end in late June/early July, pending weather and subsurface conditions.

Work in the adjacent area along the riverfront and recreational path will continue through mid-to-late March. The recreational path will remain closed until equipment and the work zone are removed from the area. 

Due to work on the flood resilience project taking place along River Dr between 3
rd and Tremont Ave, the Riverfront Recreational Trail has been closed between the Government Bridge and Prospect Park. The closure is necessary for pedestrian and cyclist safety due to the proximity of work and heavy equipment to the trail.  The trail is estimated to re-open mid-to-late March.
