Important Information For Residents Of Northside
National Grid is undertaking an endeavor to enhance their gas service(s) to the residents of Northside. The areas that will be affected are identified within a letter that was recently sent to each homeowner within the affected area and shown below. Because of the size and scope of this undertaking, the Town has had regular meetings and communications with National Grid to ensure that the work be completed timely, with a moderate disruption to the neighborhood and with a full restoration of the disturbed areas to the Town standards. The work that needs to be done has been identified and categorized into three phases. Phase One will be within the west sidewalk area of Saratoga Avenue from Stewarts to Clifton Street. Phase Two, which has begun, is from Saratoga Avenue, along Clifton Street and under the Canadian Pacific Railroad tracks. Phase Three will be installing a new main and house services within and along the following streets: River Street, Clifton Street, Grove Street, First Avenue from Clifton to Grace, and Grace Street from First Avenue to VanDerwerken Avenue. At this time National Grid intends to begin work in the near future on Phases One and Three. When those start dates become definite, we will update accordingly.

Champlain Canalway Trail Rehabilitation Project
Work has begun on the rehabilitation of a 1.2 mile section of the Champlain Canalway Trail in Waterford. During construction, this section of the trail will be closed to the public. The Champlain Canalway Trail extends from Waterford to Whitehall and is 62 miles in length. Portions of it is co-located on the Empire State Trail.
The project limits will extend from Broad Street (NY 32) to a point approximately 1.2 miles north where a new section of the trail was completed in 2019. The scope of the project will include resurfacing (stone dust and asphalt), trail widening, clearing & tree removal, drainage improvements and new wooden fencing.
Funding for the project ($227,600) is provided by the Hudson River Valley Greenway. The contractor is WMJ Keller of Castleton-on-Hudson, NY. The project designer is CHA Consulting, Inc. and Saratoga County Planning Department is the project manager. The proposed completion date is October 28th.
