Chappaqua Downtown Revitalization – July 14, 2019

A temporary stop sign has been installed on King Street at the intersection of South Greeley Avenue. Since the South Greeley Avenue stop sign had to be moved back from the intersection with the reconfiguration of the new sidewalk and outdoor space along with ongoing work downtown, there was concern that drivers traveling along both streets wouldn’t be able to see if a car was moving into the crossing. The stop sign was placed on the corner outside George’s Men’s Shop. All of the stop signs at the intersection will be removed once the traffic light is functioning. We are hoping that new signal will be installed and working by as soon as September when school resumes. As well, as part of the traffic light installation, over the next 2 weeks, they will start installing the 5 pedestrian poles at the King/Greeley intersection. The first 3 pedestrian poles will be installed at the corners of Starbucks, North Country Sotheby’s & Georges Men’s Shop. The poles will allow pedestrians to press a button to change the walk signal to green. We will be excavating for the pedestrian pole footings, installing rebar & then concrete for the pole footings. We will also be excavating & installing electrical conduits. As far as lower King, they excavated both sides of lower King and installed new asphalt. Diagonal parking along the SOUTH side of lower King (Village Market side) was installed. The shift of parking from the north side to the south side was always planned and is required for the proper alignment of traffic from King to lower King. As far as upper King to North Greeley (Waka side), this week they will excavate & grade for the granite curb then install the granite curb. The following week they will excavate & remove existing sidewalk, and then excavate & install the light pole footings & conduits. As far as the alley on South Greeley by Chappaqua Framing, they excavated & installed the trench drain. They placed concrete & installed the brick pavers. This week they will continue to install brick pavers. As far as upper King from South Greeley to Senter Street (Family Britches side), Con Ed relocated the pole. They excavated, graded for the curb, and installed the granite curb. This week they will continue to install granite curb. By the historical society, they excavated, graded for the curb and installed the granite curb. This week they will continue to excavate & install granite curb.
