  • Princeton Dr Albany, NY 12208, USA - Albany
    With the addition of all the new parking garages for AMC, the new traffic lights on Holland Avenue, and all the traffic that leaves the vicinity at 4:30 every day, there have been backups from Delaware Avenue through New Scotland Avenue (and further) on both sides of the road due to congestion. Often the traffic lights (such as the one in front of the VA) allow people from the VA and from the Albany Law parking lot to enter onto Holland, but not enough time for those on Holland to continue on their journey. Hackett backs up as well, as people use Clara Barton Road to try to bypass the traffic. It seems when they did the new intersection at Delaware and Morton, they should have added a third lane for right-turn only onto Delaware to help with the traffic.

  • watervliet, NY - Watervliet
    Only way to get there new GLOBAL FOUNDRIES Plant or the malls, by bus is to travel via Schenectady which would take one and half hours to go 12 miles. How does one get a job in the plant or the malls without a car when there is no bus route?

  • 428 Saratoga Street Cohoes, New York - Cohoes
    CDTA operates Northway express buses that run from Saratoga County to Albany they run empty on the return trips. That means Northbound is empty in the AM and Southbound is empty in the PM. Some of these empty return buses could make a stop at EITHER Rt. 32 and Tibbits Ave OR Rt. 32 and 23rd St to pick up passengers for GLOBAL FOUNDRIES. The return buses current pass by these two intersections.
    Current there is no way to get there new GLOBAL FOUNDRIES Plant or the malls in Saratoga county by bus. How can you get a job at Rt. 146 malls or GLOBAL FOUNDRIES without a car?

  • 1 Notre Dame Dr Albany, NY 12208, USA - Albany
    Since the city of Albany decided to make the first half of Notre Dame drive a one-way street by Albany Law, traffic leaving the university heights area has been a living nightmare ESPECIALLY in inclement weather (which includes snow AND rain). Several times in the last year alone it has taken me more than one hour to go from outside the Law school to Clara Barton Drive (which should also have a light at its exit onto Hackett). This issue has only gotten worse as the pharmacy school has taken over the old transportation building and increased traffic. Why was the change made, and couldn't the city do a traffic study on this area to alleviate the congestion? In gridlocked conditions, people make Notre Dame a two-way street anyway - just to make it out onto Holland without running out of gas waiting in your car for SOMEONE to move. There should also be a left-turning signal and separate lane on Princeton Drive's exit onto Holland Ave, as it is nearly impossible to make a left-hand turn at rush hour especially with the VA traffic.

  • Zoar Ave Albany, NY - Albany
    Zoar Avenue between Lincoln and Central is an absolute mess. So many potholes you can barely drive down it'. There are lots of people who take this road to drop the kids off to school as well as go between central and Lincoln and the roads are so bad that you have to basically drive on the other side of the road to avoid them. This needs to be fixed quickly.

  • New York 378 Menands, NY 12204, USA - Menands
    Upon getting onto 378West , from 787 north Watervliet exit, 378 has horrible speed bump-like fill-ins that extend across the whole road, that not only disrupt your vehicle from driving safely but also can damage your car, affect front end allignment and more. There are 2 really bad spots right away and then a milder series of many bumps all the way up the 378 hill. On the other side of 378East going down the hill to get onto 787 you are lucky enough to hit a few more!

  • Garbage Can Archived
    12 Lincoln Avenue Albany, New York - Albany
    Hello, per a previous report (Dog Waster Station) a garbage can was supposed to be placed on the corner of West Lawrence and Manning last week (on the St Anne's side of the street). I just check and no garbage can has been placed yet.

  • 54 Spring Street Albany, New York - Central Avenue
    This roof has severe ponding as a result of the rain. The property sits vacant and unmaintained. WPNA and the neighbors of Spring Street are concerned about this property and has sat vacant and neglected for a long time.

  • Hazelhurst Ave And Homestead St Albany, New York - Campus Area-University District

    The intersection at the corner of Homestead St and Hazelhurst Ave is well known as a dangerous intersection. Serious accidents have occurred here, crossing the street with your children is dangerous, and anyone turning left from Homestead to Hazelhurst knows there is a chance for an accident anytime that turn is made. The issue is that the intersection is at the top of a hill so you cannot see if anyone is coming up from the other side until it's too late. The issue has been raised by many local residents through various forums but never addressed, and no acceptable reason has been provided for why a sign cannot be put here.

    This new city of Albany website is a great idea to get issues like this more widely recognized and to show support. Thank you to the city for making this service available.
