Mayor Madden Announces Traffic and Pedestrian Safety Improvements to Campbell, Spring Avenue Intersection
Reconfigured roadway, installation of new light poles and crosswalks to enhance pedestrian safety and improve traffic flow
Phase one of project underway at intersection of Campbell and Spring Avenues in Troy’s Eastside Neighborhood
TROY, NY – Mayor Patrick Madden today announced the start of planned pedestrian safety and traffic improvements on Campbell and Spring Avenues in Troy’s Eastside neighborhood. The two-phase project includes the installation of new traffic lights and reconfigured roadway on Spring Avenue to enhance pedestrian safety and improve traffic flow.
Mayor Madden said, “The planned improvements on Spring Avenue are part of the City’s commitment to improving the flow of traffic and creating a safe passage for local residents. The addition of upgraded traffic lights, improved road layout, and pedestrian safety features will help protect Troy residents, children, and families who use Campbell Avenue and Spring Avenue daily.”
The project includes the realignment of Spring Avenue at the intersection with Campbell Avenue. The modified approach to the intersection will increase public safety by enhancing line of sight for eastbound motorists on Spring Avenue. New pedestrian signals and crosswalks are planned at Spring Avenue’s intersections with Campbell and Maple Avenues. New traffic signals will be installed to improve traffic flow and increase visibility for motorists and pedestrians.
Contractors have been mobilized at the site, with preliminary work scheduled to begin next week. Motorists are asked to reduce speeds in the work zone and watch for flaggers to keep workers safe. Digital signage has been deployed to alert drivers of work zone hazards and traffic restrictions. Intermittent lane closures may be possible beginning Monday, January 13. The project timeline is scheduled to continue through late spring 2020.
