Major Infrastructural Changes Slated for Lincoln Avenue

Written By: Deprecated User

Funding from the Federal, State, and City of New Rochelle will provide the financial and engineering impetus to move forward with the much-needed infrastructure improvements along Lincoln Avenue. Initial construction is anticipated to begin in the fall of 2007 District #3 pending design approval by NYSDOT. The Lincoln Avenue Reconstruction project will renovate approximately 1 mile of roadway from the intersection of Lincoln Avenue with North Avenue to the Pelham/New Rochelle City Line. Improvements in the street surface, drainage conditions and major intersections along Lincoln Avenue will be addressed. Pedestrian traffic will be greatly enhanced through improved safety measures in new traffic signals, crosswalks, sidewalks, modified curbs and stripping. In addition, in October 2006 Con-Edison began the process of installing a feeder cable along the length of Lincoln Avenue and Manor Place. The additional service will increase the overall power capacity in the area as a complement to our growing power needs in the city. The work is scheduled to be completed in April 2007.
