Dundee project will start in July

DUNDEE--The streetscape project for Dundee, which will include new downtown sidewalks and a resurfaced Main Street with landscape planters and new street lights, is now set to begin in July.
Dundee Mayor Fred Cratsley Jr. spoke about the project Wednesday, April 24 to the Dundee Rotary Club and said he looks forward to the work getting done.
Cratlsey said, "This is a $1.5 million project that will not only improve the appearance of downtown but the other objective is to capture drain water and re-direct the run-off water to Big Stream." Cratsley said this should prevent the puddles and ponds of standing water that Dundee has dealt with downtown for a long time.
The mayor said the work will start in the village at Spring Street and go down to the school. Cratsley said state funds will pay 90 percent or $1,350,000 while the village is responsible for 10 percent of the project. Cratsley added, "And we plan to offer in-kind village services for our portion of the work." The mayor said that means the village will offer to utilize village equipment and machinery whenever possible to help with the work."
Additional features of the project include:
• Reconstructed porous asphalt driveway aprons, pervious flexi-pave within the pedestrian corridors, stormwater infiltration trees, bioretention bump outs, and a downspout disconnect with an infiltration planter to mitigate significant ponding water problems that have damaged road shoulder pavement section, driveway aprons and storm ditches.
• Motorists will see improved pedestrian-scale streetscape that will encourage multi-modal mobility and better address stormwater problems.
• New standardized street trees will be planted along both sides of the downtown corridors.
• The existing sidewalks along the south side of Union Street and the west side of Main Street not compliant with disability standards will be reconstructed to be in compliance.
Cratsley said the work is now slated to begin the Monday after Dundee Day in July. The mayor said the work that is not done by fall 2019 will be finished in spring of 2020.
