Tupper Lake The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), after consideration of public input, has selected a preferred alternative for the reconstruction of State Routes 3 and 30 in the Village of Tupper Lake.
The selected alternative will utilize the existing highway footprint rather than pursue development of a new alignment, which would have significant impacts on existing properties and businesses in the village.
The selected alternative involves the reconstruction of Wawbeek Avenue, Park Street, Mill Street and Lake Street from Pleasant Avenue to Mill Street.
Minor improvements will be made to the remainder of Lake Street as part of the project to accommodate traffic using Lake Street as a detour around on going work. The project will also include improvements to the water and sewer lines along the length of the project.
The $12.7 million project is expected to go bid in October of 2014, and begin construction in the spring of 2015. It is anticipated to be a two year project.
