COMPLETION FINALLY APPROACHING FOR RESIDENTS AFTER TWO YEARS OF CONSTRUCTION
Roadways Milling and Resurfacing-in the Middle Village area bordered by the Queens Midtown Expressway, Eliot Avenue, 80 Street and 74 Street; in the Glendale area bordered by Myrtle Avenue, Cooper Avenue, Cypress Avenue and Cypress Hills Street; in the Middle Village area bordered by Eliot Avenue, Metropolitan Avenue, Mount Olivet Crescent and Fresh Pond Road; and in the Ridgewood area bordered by Putnam Avenue, Catalpa Avenue, Fresh Pond Road and Forest Avenue.
Thank you to the residents for all the inconveniences for the past two years. Some took it in stride, some approached workers and supervisors with typical questions. And the very few who complained the most, will still be complaining after completion. When we are done we will be gone. So the aftermath of complaints will continue by the very few residents who will never be satisfied, and will continue to do so to their neighbors or anyone else that passes by.
New Sewer Lines and Water Mains for the Penelope Avenue Area of Middle Village (Project #: SEQ 2693)Plans are to install an 11 foot by 6.5 foot diameter concrete box sewer in 74 Street, between Juniper Boulevard South and Penelope Avenue, which will add significantly more sewer capacity during severe storms. In addition, existing sewer lines in Penelope Avenue, from 71 Street to 74 Street; in Juniper Valley Road, from 74 Street to 77 Street; in Gray Street, from Juniper Valley Road to 66 Drive; in 77 Street, from Juniper Valley Road to Gray Street; in 66 Road, from Gray Street to 77 Street; and in 75 Street, from Juniper Valley Road to 66 Drive will be replaced by substantially larger sewer lines.
Residents had their houses shaken during construction, their stoops and sidewalks cracked, however the Project manager will see to it that everyone is taken care of. Please be patient and remember we took photo's of before the construction so we can do our best to repair or replace what is needed. Please refrain from approaching us on a continued basis so we may complete the project.
