The Town has issued a Notice to Proceed to each Contractor. This starts the contractual “clock” wherein contractors must complete all construction within 24 months.
The first contractor to start will be Tech Industries. They will be doing the section along the East side of the lake from the end of Eastside Drive Clifton Park boundary along the various lanes then Lake Road and connecting to the Stonebridge pump station. They plan to start construction the middle of October. The general plan is to start at the pump station and lay the main line first. Then, in the Spring of next year, construction will proceed lane by lane. The final step, probably in the Fall of next year, would be installing the resident connections. When this is done, the connection locations specified by the residents will be delineated with stakes. The project team will work with residents to finalize or move these points if needed. Contractors will be providing timely notice to residents when they will be working in their area to assure any temporary blocking of driveway access is coordinated.
A second contractor, Vacri Construction, will be starting work on the directional drill on Outlet Road. Outlet Road will be closed from October 28th to Nov 25th. Residents, school transportation systems, and emergency services will be notified. Message boards will go up next week to advise drivers. Arrangements will be made for residents to access homes from Route 50.
The schedules of other contractors are presently being finalized. Also, each month the project engineer will provide an update to the Town Board and Sewer Committee. Any updated schedules and Application for Payments received from the Contractor will be provided. Each application will show the amount of work completed to date and work remaining and will include a letter from the Engineer recommending payment and certifying that the work noted for payment has been completed. The project engineer will provide project updates at the Town Board Agenda meeting.
The Town is developing a formal deferral request process. As soon as this is completed it will be posted to the sewer website and provided to the Town Clerk.
