Hoosick Street Troy, NY 12180, USA - Frear Park
Hoosick Street has inadequate crosswalks. People have been killed trying to cross this street. The city painted new lines last fall and they are almost entirely worn off.
The city or DOT needs to install heavy duty crosswalk material to represent the heavy duty usage of one of the areas busiest roadways.
Sage Ave Troy, NY - Troy
Someone had made this an issue recently but it has disappeared.
I think it warrants being republished because of what a mess the troy record website has become.
I tried counting how many advertisements are jammed on the main page but there are so many that I gave up! They have every kind of ad imaginable... pop ups, pop unders, pop over, animations, clickables, and more!
After I leave the troy record website I have to close the pop up ads that have opened themselves in a new browser behind the main page. Today it is a netflix and a life insurance. It's enough to make me want to scream.
It is obvious that the troy records NEWS website isn't about NEWS... it is about making money on advertising. They should really rethink what the website should be about. Is it about making a few bucks off the annoying advertisements or is it about being a useful place for local people to get their news?
Look at the TU's website. They know their role.
Oakwood Ave From Frear Pk To Hoosick St. Troy, NY - Frear Park
Oakwood Ave is a very, very busy truck route. Along with 1000's of passenger vehicles, 18 wheelers travel up and down this road all day and night.
Most residents of Oakwood ave have on-street parking only.
Since the city only pushes the snow toward the curb (into our parking spaces) and doesn't REMOVE the snow, residents are forced to park partially in the travel lane!
My vehicle was hit yesterday. I was parked as far out of the travel lane as I could get. My wheels were in the snowbank. The now banks are encroaching into the street roughly 2-4 feet away from the curbs.
The police had to waste time to come make out a report when they could have been doing something productive.
Does the city have any big snow blowing machines (like Albany has) that chew up and spit out the snow into an adjacent dump truck? If Troy has snow removal equipment, why isn't it being utilized? Especially, in busy, dangerous places like Oakwood Ave.
302 Hoosick St Troy, NY 12180, USA - Frear Park
Route 7 (Hoosick Street) from the bottom of Alternate Rte. 7 to the intersection of South/North Lake Avenues is horrendous! Bump after bump and pothole after pothole. I drive this route everyday to get to I-87N, and I'm surprised my car is still in one piece.
Georgian Terrace - Troy
Troy Police need to attend an event at the new stadium behind the Field House. The PA system can be heard clearly more than a half mile away. If a vehicle with a too loud stereo or a motorcycle with a loud exhaust can be ticketed, why not the RPI administration. TURN IT DOWN!
Burdett Ave & Sage Ave(11941) Troy, NY 12180, USA - Troy
any child who attends troy middle school is at risk!!!! people are flying in a school zone and never yield to kids in cross walks. i have witness many children being yield at by drivers as the try to cross in the cross walk. nys law says yield but not even the bus drivers are. we really need some signs to remind drivers of the law or maybe tickets should be issued. something really has to be done before we have a died child. please our children are to precious to waste.
1519-1535 Bouton Rd Troy, NY 12180, USA - Troy
This road, right next to the Fire Dept, is down to one lane for both directions because of poor-to-no snow removal and RPI students parking in what is the lane of traffic. It's very dangerous for drivers, even worse because of all the students on foot out in the middle of the street.
79-83 8th St Troy, NY 12180, USA - Troy
Students coming/going between RPI and downtown constantly run through traffic which is going entirely too fast. The rise in the road where the EMPAC is makes it hard to spot students and safely stop, and I would think it makes it hard for students to spot cars. This area needs, at least, some speeding control, and at worst, a dedicated pedestrian crossing light.
