Upcoming Construction: Union Street Water and Sewer Project to Begin Monday, April 30, 2018
Since becoming an amalgamated Municipality in 1996, Region of Queens Municipality has been able to invest approximately $70 million in capital upgrades to our infrastructure throughout Queens County that has helped our environment, provide safe streets, sidewalks, and drinking water, as well as quality recreational facilities. We are proud of the work that has been completed over the past 21 years and that work will continue in 2018-2019.
Work will begin on Monday, April 30, 2018, on the section of Union Street from Main Street to Church Street, and also on Mill Lane. The project involves replacement of century old water and sewer pipes and installation of a new sanitary storm sewer; the work is expected to take place throughout the spring and conclude by the end of summer . As a result of the construction, the section of Union Street from Main Street to Church Street will be closed to all vehicular traffic; sidewalks will be open as practical and reasonable during the construction period. Region of Queens staff has met with property owners and residents of the area to discuss the project, and to mitigate potential negative impacts from the project.
Motorists are advised to plan their routes accordingly. The patience and understanding of the public is appreciated during the construction period.
