Road Work

The weather is finally cooperating and we will be starting our final phase of road work tomorrow, Monday July 30th. We will be on Hicks Hill Rd.  If we are able to complete that road, we will be moving on to Birch Dr., Nine Partners Dr. and Wicks Dr.  After that, we are headed to Academy St., Factory La., Smith St., Myrtle Ave. and Johnny Cake Hollow.  Please drive with caution through the work zones.  I will keep you updated as the work progresses throughout the week.

A Message from the Highway Superintendent:

To all Pine Plains Residents- Please be advised that the New York State Department of Transportation will be sweeping the State Roadways located within our Town late during the evening of Thursday April 26, 2018 into the early morning hours of April 27, 2018. Although not convenient for those trying to sleep, this is the safest time for the NYSDOT to perform these duties. If you can refrain from parking along the State roadway during this period of time, it would be much appreciated. Please keep in mind that this sweeping project will target only State roads. My crew has been out sweeping the Town roads during regular daytime work hours for the past several weeks now.
I am hopeful to have the street sweeper/vacuum contractor return on Monday April 30, 2018 to complete sweeping of the Town maintained roadways located in the center of Town in order to get rid of the sand at the road edge . The crew has also started tree trimming, ditch cleaning, springtime cleanup duties and road prep work so please be careful while traveling our roads. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Heather M. Wilson, Highway Superintendent 518-398-6662 Office, 518-965-1876 Cell. Thank you!
