Williston Park Superintendent of Public Works Steven Shelley provided an update of his department’s progress on the village’s roads project Monday night during the Board of Trustees meeting.
In the past month, Shelley said it was very busy and that contractors have completed concrete work on Hawthorne Street, Remsen Street, Franklin Street, Charles Street, Henry Street, Park Place and Yale Street between Syracuse Street and the dead end and Broad Street between Fordham Street and the pool parking lot.
Contractors are currently working on Princeton Street between Willis Street and Broad.
The streets that have sections left to be completed before the project ends are Brown, Cornell, Dartmouth, Fordham, Harvard, Lehigh and Syracuse
The project remains on schedule and is expected to be completed by mid-September barring any inclement weather or supply chain issues, according to the village’s website.
Mayor Paul Ehrbar also urged the audience to attend the Williston Park Fire Department’s Independence Day parade on Monday, July 4, beginning at 9:30 a.m.
The parade route runs from Broad to Hillside before turning down onto Park Avenue, Center Street and finally Willis Avenue before finishing at the firehouse.
“It’s going to be a great event. The residents should come out and acknowledge what we’re doing and celebrate the day,” Ehrbar said. “It’s an amazing day for the history of our country and we should thank the firemen for putting this on.”
The next board of trustees meeting for the village will be Monday, July 18.
