Saratoga Springs bike, pedestrian crossing to open

A new bicycle and pedestrian crossing between the Railroad Run Trail and Spa State Park will open Saturday.

A 9 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned to dedicate the crossway across Route 50, near its intersection with West Avenue.

A crossway has been installed in recent months by the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. It offers a crossing point from the Railroad Run trail — an off-road trail running from West Circular Street — to a newly constructed paved path in the park.

There will be a pedestrian-activated traffic light that will allow bicyclists and pedestrians to stop traffic and cross. Callanan Industries Inc. installed the $181,000 traffic signal, which will blink yellow unless it is activated.

Saratoga PLAN, the land conservation and trail development group, said the project has been 10 years in the making.
