SCHENECTADY -- City officials will host a public forum on Tuesday to discuss planned road improvements along Erie Boulevard.

City Engineer Chris Wallin said the public meeting will include a review of proposed updates to the stretch of Erie Boulevard between the roundabout and Union Street. The city is planning to pave the road, install new curbs and sidewalks and upgrade infrastructure.

The changes are not finalized, Wallin said, and the meeting is intended to inform the public and gather feedback.

The forum is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. in College Park Hall, located on Nott Street.

In addition to a new surface, the project, which is considered “phase three” of road upgrades in that area, will include installation of a new water line and evaluation of sanitary and storm drains, Wallin said.

The first phase involves work on the water lines, a project that is out to bid and should be done in the spring, Wallin said. Phase two is focused on roadway reconstruction, which will take place in the summer or fall, he said.
