2018 DPW ANNUAL REPORT

How to navigate through the new Roundabout:

Slow Down when approaching the Roundabout.

REMEMBER THAT YOU MUST YIELD TO ONCOMING TRAFFIC IN ROUDABOUT

Making a left turn movement at a multi-lane roundabout

  1. Find street and direction in which you wish to go on roundabout signs before intersection.
  2. When approaching the roundabout, you should be in the left-hand lane to make a left-hand turn.
  3. As you approach the roundabout, look ahead to see any pedestrians and bicyclists that might be entering the intersection and yield to them.
  4. Yield to oncoming traffic at the yield line.
  5. When sufficient space and time to enter traffic occur, enter the roundabout. You should enter to the inside path (left side) of the circulatory roadway.
  6. Use your right turn signal to let other drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians know that you are exiting the roundabout at the next exit as soon as you pass the exit prior to the desired exit.
  7. Stay to the left, the inside path, until you come to the desired exit.
  8. You will now proceed from the inside path (left side) of the circulatory roadway, across the outside path (right side), and exit the roundabout in the inside (left) exit lane. When exiting from the inside path, watch for vehicles on the outside path that may continue to circulate around the roundabout.
  9. As you exit the roundabout, look ahead to see any pedestrians and bicyclists that might be entering the intersection and yield to them.

Left Turn on Roundabout

 

Making a through movement at a multi-lane roundabout

  1. Find street and direction in which you wish to go on roundabout signs located before intersection.
  2. In the case of a roundabout, either lane that enters the roundabout can be used to go straight through the intersection.
  3. As you approach the roundabout, look ahead to see any pedestrians and bicyclists that might be entering the intersection and yield to them.
  4. Yield to oncoming traffic at the yield line.
  5. When sufficient space and time to enter traffic occur, enter the roundabout.
  6. Maintain your path upon entering until you come to the desired exit. If you enter from the left lane you should proceed to the inside path (left side) of the circulatory roadway. If you enter from the right lane you should proceed to the outside path (right side) of the circulatory roadway.
  7. Use your right turn signal to let other drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians know that you are exiting the roundabout at the next exit as soon as you pass the exit prior to the desired exit.
  8. You should maintain your path through the exiting maneuver. If you exit from the outside path (right side) of the circulatory roadway you should proceed to the right (outside) exit lane. If you exit from the inside path (left side) of the circulatory roadway you should proceed to the left (inside) exit lane. When exiting from the inside path, watch for vehicles on the outside path that may continue to circulate around the roundabout.
  9. As you exit the roundabout, look ahead to see any pedestrians and bicyclists that might be entering the intersection and yield to them.

Through Movement at Roundabout

Making a right turn movement at a multi-lane roundabout

  1. Find street and direction in which you wish to go on roundabout signs located before intersection.
  2. When approaching a multilane roundabout you should be in the right-hand lane to make a right-hand turn.
  3. As you approach the roundabout, look ahead to see any pedestrians and bicyclists that might be entering the intersection and yield to them.
  4. Yield to all circulating traffic at the yield line.
  5. Use your right turn signal to let other drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians know that you are exiting the roundabout at the next exit.
  6. When sufficient space and time to enter traffic occurs, enter the roundabout.
  7. Stay to the right and proceed immediately out of the roundabout and into a successful right-hand turn.
  8. As you exit the roundabout, look ahead to see any pedestrians and bicyclists that might be entering the intersection and yield to them.
  9. This type of right-hand turn can be made from every approach to the roundabout.

PROPOSED BLACK DIRT SANITARY SEWER REPLACEMENT

ATTENTION RESIDENTS, COMMUTERS, AND PEDESTRIAN IN THE VICINITY OF ELM ST., BONNELL ST., BONNEL PL., LAKE AVE., LIBERTY ST., CANTRELL AVE., AND CLEMSON PARK:

The City of Middletown has begun construction of the Proposed Black Dirt Sanitary Sewer Replacement Project. The Construction contract was awarded to Boyce Excavating, Inc. (Slate Hill, NY).

Construction activities began in February 2018 and work is anticipated to be complete by October 2018. Generally, the contractor is permitted to work between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. However, some night time work will be necessary during this project. All night time shifts will be coordinated with the City.

Much of the project will be constructed on private property within easements obtained by the City of Middletown for the new sewer line. Boyce Excavating will coordinate with property Owners when work is being performed on their property and when work will affect access to homes. All private property will be restored to pre-existing conditions prior to construction completion.

Work in public rights of way (i.e. streets) will involve vehicular periodic traffic detours and flagging operations. Pedestrian traffic detours will also be required at certain times.

Questions or concerns should be directed to:

City of Middletown

Department of Public Works

845-343-3169

We regret the inconvenience, and appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we continue to rebuild our City infrastructure.

Note:  Please note that it’s illegal to connect sump pumps, roof gutters, downspouts and stormsewer discharges to any Sanitary Sewers as this causes excess flows to our Sanitary Sewer System.

We appreciate your cooperation.

Jacob S. Tawil, P.E.

Commissioner of Public Works
