The two unfinished construction projects in Swanton continue to move forward.

Garfield Bridge replacement is moving along with the rear abutment piles driven and excavation of forward abutment complete.

The contractor will pour the rear footing and finish piling at the forward abutment this week. Next week the contractor is scheduled to pour the forward abutment and form the abutments. The beams are tentatively scheduled for the second week of October.

Completion of the bridge replacement is scheduled for early December, according to Village Administrator Rosanna Hoelzle. Garfield Avenue from the bridge east to Main Street will be paved after completion.

This work is all weather contingent.

Project 7 Sewer Separation is still running on time. The contractor is working on the mainline along Lawrence Avenue. The contractor is set to install catch basins on Chestnut on Tuesday, Sept. 18. The road closure at the intersection of Harrison and Chestnut is tentatively scheduled for 7 a.m. until approximately 1 p.m. The contractor will keep the drive to the library open, according to village officials.

The entire project is still expected to wrap up in the middle of October.

The work is weather contingent.

“Again, the Village of Swanton appreciates your patience and understanding as we work to make the Village of Swanton a great place to live, work and play,” said Hoelzle.
