The $43 million project to fix Glendale's sewers is already funded, Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley announced.

Once the July 4 fireworks die down, residents of Middle Village can expect to hear the familiar sounds of construction as work on the Penelope Avenue sewer project picks back up.

According to the city Department of Design and Construction (DDC), work will begin on or about Wednesday, July 5, and last until Friday, July 7, for a pair of projects involving the installation of sewer pipes.

Beginning at 7 a.m. on July 5, DDC will be installing 24-inch RCP combined sewer pipes on 66th Road between Gray Street and 77th Street. This work is expected to last until July 7.

Then, on July 7, DDC will install 15-inch ESVP combined sewer pipes on 77th Street between Gray Street and 66th Road.

Work days will start at 7 a.m. and last until 3:30 p.m.

Curbside parking and driveway access will also be restricted during times of construction. DDC requests that vehicles be removed from the areas before 7 a.m. on July 5 for the 66th Road work, and July 7 for the 77th Street work. Signs will be posted in the affected areas.

Only emergency vehicles will have full access to the streets, and pedestrian access to will be maintained at all times.

Throughout the duration of the construction, DDC will monitor operations and work within Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Noise Code Regulations.

Residents with any questions regarding construction are encouraged to call the DDC field office at 718-326-3858. The field office hours are Monday to Friday between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
