Queens: Market Street Project Nears Completion

Months of traffic slowdowns around Market and Main Streets in Liverpool could be coming to an end soon. The Region of Queens says the Market Street Infrastructure Renewal Project should be done by the end of the month. Crews with Public Works have been working nearly around the clock to ensure that the large scale water, sewer and storm drain renewal project is completed as quickly as possible. The project involved replacing century old water lines, deteriorated sewage lines, installation of a storm drainage system, and renewal of sidewalks and pavement. The Region of Queens says there were some challenges including a large amount of intact timber cribbing interlaced with existing water and sewer lines.
