  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
