Mayor Madden: South Troy Industrial Access Road will help address traffic safety, quality of life concerns in the South Troy neighborhood and unlock vacant waterfront properties for future economic development opportunities
TROY, NY – Mayor Patrick Madden today announced the City of Troy is seeking bids for construction of the first phase of the South Troy Industrial Park Road project, a new 1.3 mile traffic route which will redirect heavy trucks away from residential neighborhoods. When complete, the roadway will help improve quality of life in the South Troy neighborhood and unlock long-vacant parcels along Troy’s waterfront for future development and economic growth.
Mayor Patrick Madden said, “Large trucks and construction vehicles using narrow city streets remains a major concern for the City and its residents, as they damage roadways and create disruptive and unsafe conditions for pedestrians and motorists alike. Construction of the South Troy Industrial Park Road will help redirect these large vehicles from residential neighborhoods while unlocking long vacant waterfront properties for redevelopment and economic growth. We’re excited to move this long-awaited project forward to benefit the residents of South Troy, part of a broader agenda focusing on neighborhood quality of life improvements for Collar City residents and families.”
Construction of the South Troy Industrial Park Road will be completed in two phases. Phase one includes improvements to existing road and construction of new road (totaling approx. 1.3 miles) between the intersection of Main Street and Burden Avenue north to Monroe Street, installation of a new traffic signal at the intersection of Main Street and Burden Avenue, new sidewalks, and asbestos remediation and demolition of a small structure located on the Alamo perimeter wall.
Phase one construction will also include installation of drainage, street lighting, traffic signage, and road striping.
