The Capital District Transportation Committee (CDTC), the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the four county region of Albany, Rensselaer, Saratoga and Schenectady (excluding the Town of Moreau and the Village of South Glens Falls), will meet on Thursday, September 2, 2021 at 3:00 p.m.

The agenda includes a presentation on the update of CDTC’s regional five-year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) of highway, transit and other transportation projects.

CDTC’s Policy Board will also discuss and act on several TIP amendments including:

  • NYSDOT - Intersection Safety Improvements at NY 9 & NY 146 in the Town of Halfmoon (new project to be added to the TIP)
  • NYSDOT - Intersection Safety Improvements at NY 29 & Rowland Street in the Town of Milton and City of Saratoga Springs (new project to be added to the TIP)
  • NYSDOT - I-890 Rehab from Mohawk River to Exit 3 in the Town of Rotterdam and City of Schenectady (new project to be added to the TIP)
