Via reader e-mail earlier today: “Say, at the moment, the police are pulling people over going up and down Altamont, and a quick Google yielded the fact that you have blogged about the repairs, so I thought I’d see what you know. Obviously, they have the road partially blocked off because of 9th, but I’d think that “local access” would stil apply, since Altamont is in perfect shape (having already been torn up recently).
Any idea what gives, since you’ve apparently looked into it? Legal to go down Altamont if you live (as do I) on that side of the 9th closure/construction? Most days, there is an opening on one lane for cars to go through (which everyone living at the top of Altamont does) except for two random days where the signs were moved over to physically block the whole thing and cops parked at either end.
Any insider info?”
Merchants were seeing a noticable drop in business over the past couple of weeks - some down 25 to 30 percent - as South Perry and Ninth Avenue were under construction. They’ll be happy to hear that South Perry is now open for good, just in time for the weekend.
Ninth Avenue from Altamont to Perry Street, and again west from Perry Street to Arthur remains closed for now.
