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.

  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.

Dear City of Middletown Residents/Businesses,

At the direction of Governor Cuomo the City of Middletown has received a grant from New York State Department of Health to replace Lead Water Services for homes or businesses that are in the City of Middletown and are supplied by City of Middletown Water System.  If you suspect that you have a Lead, Brass or Galvanized Water Service line that extends from City Water Mains that are in the Street and into your house/building, please call us and we will arrange for a visit to verify the material of the water service.  

 The grant will pay for replacement of the water service from City Water Main in the Street and into your house/building, but prior to connection point to your water meter.

 Please check construction material of your Water Service entering your house/building at the penetration point from the outside, and report it to Department of Public Works at 343-3169, ASAP, as the grant funds are limited.

 Please call us also if you are unsure of the type of water service that you may have and we'll be happy to visit and help make the determination. 

 Thank you.

Dear City of Middletown Water Customer,

The City of Middletown has retained Energy Systems Group (ESG), and indirectly Professional Meters, Inc, (PMI) to install new Automatic Reading water meters at every water service location. The vast majority of meters have already been replaced by PMI since the beginning of their work in April of 2017. PMI will be ceasing their meter replacement efforts by end of October 2017.

PMI indicates that there is a number of locations which have not been cooperative in scheduling appointments to have their meter replaced, even after 4 notice attempts made by PMI.

PLEASE NOTE: Any remaining meter locations that have NOT been scheduled and replaced by the time that PMI ceases meter installations for the City of Middletown, will incur a $200.00 SURCHARGE FEE (added to their regularly scheduled water bill) for each subsequent billing period, and is subject to WATER SERVICE TERMINATION.

Furthermore, please also note the following responsibilities of the owner:

Residential development in the City of Middletown used to suffer flooding whenever stormwater topped off Co Rt 78.  

Conventional engineering solutions such as Stormwater Detention Ponds or larger culverts were not feasible or appropriate solutions. 

Innovative thinking in Middletown, which included construction of flood diversion wall continues to save the residential development from the devastation of flooding. 

Photos below were taken during the 6/19/2017 flash flood by Commissioner Tawil.
