SCHENECTADY – The City of Schenectady will host a public meeting on proposed safety improvements along Brandywine Avenue between I-890 and State Street on Wednesday at 6 p.m. at Tropics Restaurant, 201 S. Brandywine Ave.

“This section of Brandywine Avenue is one of the busiest corridors in the city, serving as a main cross route perpendicular to I-890, State Street and Union Street,” said Mayor Gary McCarthy. “We encourage residents to participate in the meeting with our engineering staff to discuss safety improvements along this busy corridor.”

The proposed safety improvements include signal upgrades, pedestrian enhancements, ADA ramps, high-visibility crosswalks and lane reconfiguration. The city applied for funding and has successfully obtained a $1.26 million federal grant through the Capital District Transportation Committee to support the project.

For additional information on the public hearing and the proposed intersection improvements, contact the City of Schenectady’s Department of Engineering at (518) 382-5082.
