Heavy traffic volumes are part of many motorist’s commutes daily on Wolf’s Crossing Road until the road failed last week.
Now the Wolf’s Crossing Road closure and detour has created another safety concern. With Oswego East High School and a large Harvey Road subdivision nearby, Oswego Public Works Director Jennifer Hughes said she has more cause for concern.
The location is between Route 30 and Harvey Road on the village’s far east side.
Hughes told what her department found after a resident contacted them.
The next step was further assistance from consulting engineers.
At Tuesday’s Oswego Village Board meeting, Hughes addressed how the situation would be solved.
A reinforced concrete pipe has been ordered and will be installed with minor modifications made in the area, she said. Plans were drawn up and reviewed Tuesday. Contractors will be contacted with the project proposal on Wednesday, and a bid will be awarded by the village on Friday, so work can start soon.
Instead of keeping the road closed for months as originally thought, the estimated timeline for completion now is weeks although weather dependent, according to Hughes, who added the project cost should be under $100,000.
