Walters Rd – Village Capital Improvement Program

An update from your Streets & Sidewalks Committee

The Walters Road Reconstruction Project is scheduled to start the week of April 16th and conclude in mid-October. As part of the Village Capital Improvement Program, the work will involve replacing the sanitary sewer system, replacing the water main, removing the Hickory Hill sanitary sewer pump station, reconstruction of Walters Road, and the addition of sidewalks on the north side of Walters from the Village line to Bell Street.  

For the duration of this project, Walters Road will be one way with all traffic flowing north bound, leaving the village. Due to the size of the equipment, width of the road and scope of the project, please be prepared to expect delays and consider alternative routes. CFEVSD Transportation, Russell and South Russell Police Departments have all been made aware of the project and changes to the traffic pattern.

The Village Council awarded the contract for this project to Mr Excavator. They will be working 4 x 10-hour days which provides flexibility to make up weather delays. Residents are advised that there will be occasional interruption of water services due to the water line replacement and notices will be provided in advance.

Healthy Food for Ducks

In response to requests from residents, the Parks Commission approved two signs to be placed in Riverside Park with information about healthy diets for waterfowl. Ducks, geese and other waterfowl face serious health complications when they eat empty calories, like bread, instead of nutrient rich foods. These health issues can impact their ability to fly, migrate, reproduce and escape predators.

Fortunately, it is easy to offer our feathered friends a healthy snack. Fresh foods like cut seedless grapes, cooked rice, peas, corn and lettuce are all great options. The Hardware Store sells bags of corn for $1.

The signs will be placed in mid-April on existing poles.

More information about the impacts of feeding waterfowl bread can be found here
