Twin Lakes Main Street full opening target date Nov. 11

Parking is open on Main Street in Twin Lakes and the latest date for full opening is now Thursday, Nov. 11.

The street has been closed for much of the summer and extending into the fall for a complete rebuild.

Here’s a press release from the village government with all of the details:

Active construction on the Main Street Reconstruction Project is complete although the road remains closed to through traffic. All parking is available on Main Street and it can be access from Lake Avenue, Lance Drive, or Burden Avenue. The road is expected to be fully open to all through traffic Thursday night, November 11 after finishing of the last concrete crosswalk.

The opening of the road comes slightly later than expected due to a required replacement of the crosswalk at the middle of the block. The stamped concrete was originally installed in early October but was rejected due to concerns over unevenness of the surface and other cracking issues. The Village worked with the contractor to provide protection from the elements for the curing concrete so that it could be installed during the relatively colder weather in the last several days. With the protection, the concrete will cure properly by Monday at which time it will be washed and sealed. By Thursday, it will be ready for traffic.

Monday, a Village contractor will repave the Municipal Parking Lot between Basset Street and Main Street. The bypass road will remain open until Main Street is fully open but the paving in the parking lot will require brief closure of the bypass road. During this time, traffic will be able to use alternative routes including the newly re-opened Burden Avenue intersection.

Upon opening of traffic on Main Street, the “double stop” on Lake Avenue will be removed. Until then, it will remain in place to control the access of Main Street through traffic onto Lake Avenue and to facilitate turning into the Main Street parking areas. A few days of continued patience is encouraged. Additionally, drivers are reminded that the four way stop where Main Street, Lance Drive, and Pawley Avenue meet at the west end of the downtown will remain. The Village Board implemented that as a permanent four way stop intersection to address various traffic and pedestrian issues in that location.

The village and the area businesses thank the community for its patience and continued patronage during this almost five month long process.”
