The City of Albany is creating a bio-swale on the Albany Middle School campus near the library to filter water running off of street to prevent pollution. This project is part of a grant that the City received and includes an education component for Albany Middle School students. The Raingarden will be constructed for teachers and students to see how bioswales work, and teachers can use this area as an opportunity for teaching cross curricular lessons. During construction, the North sidewalk in front of school will be inaccessible. We asked the City to ensure that the noisiest portion of the construction occurs before students return to school. However, construction will occur during the first two to three weeks of school.
Parking in front of Albany Middle School will be limited due to the work area. There will be ample signage and barriers to keep children and motorists out of the construction area. In addition, flashing school signage will be installed on Brighton.
If possible, please drop students off on Key Route or Masonic Avenue and remind them to cross Brighton on the crosswalks.
