The Greeneway resurfacing project got underway this week as crews from Beam Paving mobilized and began root excavation and repair on the first section from Hammond's Ferry Road to Riverview Park. Once this work is completed, Beam crews will mill the existing asphalt to a full depth of 4 inches. After the milling work is finished, they will begin the asphalt paving. As soon as the asphalt work is in place, the crews will dress up the shoulders of the Greeneway and stripe the trail. The estimated completion time of this section is July 30. This section of the Greeneway will remain closed until all work is completed. Greeneway users are able to detour this section by going through Riverview Park.

Please note that this schedule is just a guide, as crews could complete this project quicker than expected, or it may run a bit over the anticipated dates if weather interferes.

The second section of resurfacing will be Hammond's Ferry Road to Center Street. The Beam Paving crews will use the same progression work sequence in this section. The projected schedule for this section is July 31-August 9. This entire section of the Greeneway will be closed beginning July 31 until all work is completed. There is no detour for this section other than using Buena Vista Avenue. Greeneway users are advised to use the Riverview Park to Bergen Road Greeneway or to use the Riverfront Greeneway. We urge all Greeneway users to stay away from the construction sites and let the crews do their job without unnecessary interference. Safety always comes first and we appreciate your cooperation.
