For Immediate Release

ALBANY, NY – Beginning Monday, November 6, 2017, and continuing each day through Friday, November 10, 2017, the City of Albany’s contractor will be milling the current asphalt roadway on Madison Avenue between Partridge Street and Lark Street/Delaware Avenue, and installing the base course of asphalt along with temporary pavement markings.  This base course of asphalt, along with the temporary pavement markings, will remain in place through the winter months until the final top course of asphalt is installed early summer 2018.  

To allow this work to proceed and limit the amount of parking inconveniences, the following Emergency No Parking schedule will be implemented:

Scheduled Emergency No Parking Restrictions:
  • On Monday, November 6 and Tuesday, November 7, 2017, from 6AM to 6PM each day, parking will prohibited on the SOUTH SIDE (even numbered addresses) of Madison Avenue from Partridge Street east to Lark Street/Delaware Avenue
  • On Wednesday, November 8 and Thursday, November 9, 2017, from 6AM to 6PM each day, parking will be prohibited on the NORTH SIDE (odd numbered addresses) of Madison Avenue from Lark Street/Delaware Avenue west to Partridge Street
  • On Friday, November 10, 2017, from 6AM to 6PM, parking will again be prohibited on the SOUTH SIDE (even numbered addresses) of Madison Avenue from Partridge Street east to Lark Street/Delaware Avenue.

Vehicles parked in violation of these parking restrictions will be subject to parking tickets and will be towed. 

Roadway milling will proceed regardless of the weather.  Additional Emergency No Parking restrictions may be added in the following week(s) if weather does not allow for pavement installation.   

Madison Avenue Work Zone Traffic Control will be in place during the milling and paving operations, and flag persons will be in place to assist traffic through the work zone.

In early summer 2018, once the top course of asphalt has been installed, the final planned pavement markings along with the upgraded traffic signals and traffic signs will become fully operational.
