Study will prepare recommendations for reducing traffic congestion, improving safety, better functioning transit, and improving bike and pedestrian access to the corridor.
CDTC and the Town of Brunswick are pleased to announce the selection of a team of consultants led by Creighton Manning Engineering for the contract to prepare the forthcoming Hoosick Road Corridor Study. The study was jointly funded by CDTC and the Town of Brunswick through CDTC’s Community and Transportation Linkage Planning Program. The Linkage Program provides federal funds to local governments to prepare community-based transportation and land use plans consistent with New Visions 2050, the Metropolitan Transportation Plan for the Capital Region.
The Hoosick Road Corridor Study will examine improvements on NYS Route 7 from Lake Ave to Sweetmilk Creek Road including traffic signal timing, signal coordination, and advanced corridor-wide computerized traffic signal control that may reduce vehicle delay, improve travel time reliability, reduce vehicle emissions, and improve safety. Intersection reconfigurations, including roundabouts and the addition of turning lanes, may also be examined. The study will also develop recommendations relating to access management, land development regulations, and improving travel conditions for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit users.
“The Hoosick Road Corridor has seen many changes in recent years, and we are excited to be partnering with the Town of Brunswick on this study”, said Sandy Misiewicz, CDTC Executive Director. “We intend to explore the current conditions in the corridor and identify a range of improvement options that consider transportation system operations, mobility options and future land development.”
Assemblymember John T. McDonald III, RPh said, "The Hoosick Road Corridor Study that is being led by CDTC and the Town of Brunswick through the Linkage Program is an excellent opportunity to engage the public to evaluate solutions for the ever-growing traffic concerns in this busy corridor. Hoosick Road and the surrounding areas have witnessed significant growth over the past decade which has economic benefits but also has brought to bear quality of life challenges as well. I look forward to participating in this study with the stakeholders to identify and support solutions."
As the Linkage Program centers community-based planning, the public will be invited to participate in every stage of the study. The study is expected to begin in early December 2022.
