Public is invited to view and comment on sidewalk plans

To the Editor:

On Tuesday, May 22, there will be a public meeting to present the Voorheesville Pedestrian Connectivity Project, which includes pedestrian facility improvements along Altamont Road (Route 156), Maple Avenue (Route 85A), and Voorheesville Avenue (Route 306).

The meeting will be part of the regular scheduled board of trustees workshop meeting located at the Voorheesville Village Hall, 29 Voorheesville Ave., and will start at 6:30 p.m.  

The presentation will include a brief overview of the project history, the existing conditions, and the preferred design alternative.

The project proposes to add sidewalks, within the existing right-of-way, at the following locations:

— The south side of Altamont Road from Claremont Drive east to Sky Terrace, and the north side of Altamont Road from Sky Terrace to School Road;

— The south side of Maple Avenue from Altamont Road east to Stonington Hill Road; and

— The north side of Voorheesville Avenue, beginning at Grove Street and continuing east approximately 1,700 feet.

Conceptual plans will be on display for review and comment by the public. Any suggestions or comments made at the meeting will be considered by the project team as the project progresses. Design approval is expected in the summer of 2018 with an anticipated start of construction in the spring of 2019.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Richard Straut, from the village of Voorheesville, at 518-765-2692 or Dan Reynolds, from Creighton Manning Engineering, at 518-446-0396.
