Clifton Park Getting A Roundabout
Whether you are traveling toward the Clifton Common or to Upstate Concert Hall, this may actually make the traffic flow a little better. Even though I am not a fan of roundabouts, this may alleviate some of the congestion. According to the Daily Gazette, the New York State Department of Transportation will unveil plans later this month for a two-lane traffic circle at the intersection of 146 and 146A. The traffic study revealed that it was a high accident area. If you have ever traveled through that intersection to go to Upstate Concert Hall or to the Clifton Common, you also know how congested that area is.
The Department Of Transportation will complete the design this winter and construction will begin in the spring of 2019. It will cost an estimated $2.7 million and will use federal Highway Safety Improvement Program Funds.
There will be a public event to see the preliminary project plans on September 20th from 6:30 to 8:30 at the Clifton Park Senior Center. You will be able to see models of the intersection and make comments on the plans.
