Gay St. Bridge project delayed, again

Demolition of the Gay Street Bridge, originally slated for August and then moved back to November, has been delayed again. The new start date is late January or early February.

In an interview Wednesday, Mike D. Holva, Project Management, Bridges, for PennDOT’s District 6-0 in King of Prussia, said that contractors’ bids based on final specifications for the project are due to be opened November 29. After contractor selection, PennDOT expects to issue a "notice to proceed" January 14, 2008.

Following that date, Holva said, "there will be at least a two-week period" before any work is done, in which the contractor is required to place signs announcing the bridge’s closing. There may also be short delays beyond that: "It’s possible that contractors may find something" in the specifications or on site that would require adjustment to the proposed work plan, he said.

With those considerations in mind, Holva estimated that work would likely begin in earnest "sometime in February."

It is estimated that the project will take two years to complete meaning the new bridge will be ready sometime in early 2010.

The parking garage is supposed to be started after the bridge is completed. No available parking in Pville for 3 more years!!

Oh my....what parking garage? Also, how much of an impact on Nailer's Row (Mill Street) will the construction have?

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
