Walking along the bridge next to a recently demolished building in the Berne hamlet, one can see the contrasting faces of stone walls from two different eras.

A corner building in the hamlet, known to plague some drivers, was torn down on July 22, part of an improvement project over two years at the intersection.

Supervisor Kevin Crosier said during the April 10 town board meeting that residents in the Berne hamlet will be able to hook into the new sewer system in June.

The project will cover sidewalks from Route 155 to the Albany city line and includes adding sidewalk ramps, upgrading pedestrian signal systems, and replacing or adding curbs.

For years, the mayor of Altamont says, he has begged and begged to get the state to repair the entry roads to the village. This summer,, Route 146 fro the east was repaved; next week, work will start on repaving Route 156 from the south.

The state’s Department of Transportation is repairing pavement this month on Route 85 and Route 9W in Albany County.

Work on Route 85 began on Tuesday, Sept. 10, at the Berne-Westerlo town line and runs seven miles east to the intersection of Route 85 and Route 157 in the town of New Scotland.

Work will not occur from Aug. 12 to 16 to accommodate visitors to the Altamont Fair. For up-to-date travel information, call 511 or visit www.511NY.org.
