SCARSDALE, N.Y. - Joggers, bikers and walkers who use the sidewalks on Griffen Avenue and Sherbrooke Road are dodging wet concrete, trucks and workers who are repairing and replacing the sidewalks.
These are two sidewalk locations around the Village of Scarsdale getting a facelift. Benedict Salanitro, superintendent of the Scarsdale Public Works Department , said these streets have been on a village list for sidewalk repairs for some time due to deterioration. Each year the village determines how many sidewalk repairs can be done based on the budget.
The sidewalks at both streets - and every location that is repaired in the future- will be made wider. The village is extending the widths of sidewalks to five feet to make plowing in the winter months easier. Sherbrooke Road is also getting curbing along the roadway installed, something it did not have in the past.
Salanitro said there should be quite a few other smaller sidewalk repairs done throughout the village this year. He also said the Sherbrooke Road repairs are being done using village employees.
"We are saving money doing this job with our own people," said Salanitro.
A contractor, Acocello Contracting, is doing the Griffen Avenue repairs.
The concrete should be dry and trucks should be driving away on Sherbrooke road by mid-week and on Griffen Avenue by the middle to end of next week.
