BRONXVILLE, N.Y. With the school year just weeks away, the village of Bronxville will start a major road resurfacing project scheduled to end before parents have to drive their children to and from school.
The roadwork will take about two weeks, Bronxvilles Superintendent of Public Works Rocco Circosta said. We have begun some curb work in anticipation of the repaving, he said. Resurfacing should begin within the next two weeks.
Streets scheduled for resurfacing are: Northwest Way, Sturgis Road, Vine Street, Tanglewylde Avenue, Pondfield Road, Courseview Road, Park Avenue and Kensington Road.
The decision was based on the age of the road, amount of traffic, state of disrepair and location in the village, Bronxville Mayor Mary Marvin said.
Thanks to a major price break in materials, the village will be doing more work than originally slated. Even if a specific street is not slated for resurfacing, the potholes throughout the village will be repaired, Marvin said.
This roadwork is not out of the norm for Bronxville, said Circosta. The village normally does its resurfacing in August because traffic on many roads is lighter than normal, he said.
Residents should expect milling of the roads first before repaving begins, so be prepared for some rough driving.
