Construction Phasing Schedule

Project Scope

Initiation and Coordination
The team conducted the Project Kick-Off Meeting in September. The team had an initial site walkthrough with Committee members in October to observe existing site conditions, issues, opportunities, constraints, and challenges. Six GIGP Committee Meetings will be held throughout the project

Public Participation
Four public information meetings will occur at strategic points along the project schedule to identify overall goals, identify opportunities, seek input, clarify and address concerns and issues, and inform the property owners of the design strategies

The team is conducting a thorough, accurate and detailed assessment and visual inventory of the Monroe Avenue corridor and its environs to assist in the project design, appropriate green infrastructure solutions, and applicable streetscape enhancements and practices.

Concept Design Phase
The team will initiate the project design with preparation of a conceptual plan that illustrates the proposed green infrastructure strategies, locations of probable interventions and retrofits, and schematic details to convey probable materials. The conceptual plans will be based on intial stormwater calculations in accordance with the NYS Stormwater Management Design Manual, and any information gathered at the Committee and Public Meetings pertaining to the aesthetic, functional and operational desires to help guide the design concepts. A Green Street Report will also be prepared during this phase to provide justification for the green infrastructure methods proposed, determine the advantages and disadvantages of improvements, as well as brief descriptions related to approximate cost, maintenance, and operations of selected practices.

Preliminary & Final Design Phase
Based on the comments from the Town, GIGP Committee, NYS Department of Transportation (DOT), NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), and the public input throughout the development of the conceptual plans and Green Street report, the B&L/EDR team will advance the conceptual design plans into preliminary and final plans to be presented formally to the Monroe Avenue GIGP Committee, the Town, and NYSDOT for final input, comment, and coordination.

Construction Phase
Construction is anticipated to begin in the spring of 2014. Construction will be phased to minimize disturbance along the Monroe Avenue corridor as much as possible.
