South Street Hill Now Open for Traffic

Dignitaries from the Mechanicville City Council, Saratoga County Board of Supervisors, Mechanicville City School District, contractors JH Malloy, engineers Barton & Loguidice, and the Mechanicville-Stillwater Area Chamber of Commerce eagerly await the ceremonial ribbon-cutting by Mayor Anthony Sylvester.

After months of construction, the South Street Hill has finally been reopened for vehicular traffic. The road was opened up back to the public after city officials held a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating completed construction on the road.

The construction was a major overhaul for the hill which included building a new retaining wall and sidewalk. A stop sign has also been added at the bottom of the hill for incoming traffic into the city.

A public hearing on the matter will be held on Wednesday evening, December 5th, at 7pm at the Senior Citizen Center.

During the four month period construction had placed a strain on travel, essentially isolating part of the area, especially residents of Pruyn Hill and families of school children who have been plagued with detours. Mayor Anthony Sylvester was relieved at seeing the project finally near completion and the road reopened.

“It was a long time coming,” said Sylvester in regards to the project’s near completion.

Construction on the South Street Hill is not finish yet. Although, the road is finish, work on the sidewalk is still ongoing.
