Congress Street Bridge Study

The City of Troy is working with the City of Watervliet on the Congress Street Bridge Study to identify ways to improve the connection between our two communities.

The $5.7M infrastructure project would create a continuous bicycle and pedestrian route across the Congress Street Bridge to connect Troy and Watervliet.

The Route 2 Multi-Modal Connectivity Project study area includes part of downtown Troy, where the project team will focus on increasing access to the Hudson River and creating a safer, more efficient street network. Funding for the study was provided through NYS Department of State, and will be used to pursue construction funding once completed.
