Schenectady's Craig Street Bike Demo Fest a Huge Success!

On September 28th, CDTC partnered with the City of Schenectady, Schenectady County, Boys & Girls Club of Schenectady and many others to hold a Bike Fest to kick off the start of a bicycle infrastructure demonstration project on Craig Street. More than 300 people were in attendance and the feedback from the public on the new lane striping including bike lanes, crosswalks, a median and stop bars was extremely positive. Thank you to all who assisted in some way with the event and here is a link to an article summing up the event in the Daily Gazette. The Craig Street Bicycle Demo will be in place through October 2nd. For more information on the demo and the Bicycle Infrastructure Plan for which this project is supporting, visit the project website here.

A very special thank you to all our sponsors:

NYSDOT Issues Draft Statewide Transportation Improvement Program

The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) draft Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) for federal fiscal years 2017 through 2020 is available for review at https://www.dot.ny.gov/programs/stip/draftstip. The STIP is a list of all projects in New York State proposed for federal funding that are scheduled to begin during this period.

The STIP contains the regional transportation improvement programs of the State's 14 metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs), and all other federally funded highway and transit projects from around the State. The STIP is generally updated every two to three years. All federally funded projects planned for federal fiscal years 2017 through 2020 must be included in this draft STIP update.

The draft STIP assumes the availability of approximately $12.5 billion in federal aid to address highway safety, bridge and highway infrastructure, public transportation infrastructure, and bicycle and pedestrian enhancements. Including State and local project contributions, the STIP would facilitate $33.4 billion in planned transportation projects.

NYSDOT will review and address comments received during the public comment period which ended on August 26th. These comments will be incorporated into the draft STIP submitted to the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Transit Administration. The draft STIP is expected to be submitted in September for final approval by October 1, 2016.
