City of Troy: Phase II Hoosick Street Corridor Study RFP
City of Troy
The Capital District Transportation Committee (CDTC) is the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) carrying out federal requirements for cooperative transportation planning and programming within the metropolitan area surrounding the Albany-Schenectady-Troy urbanized area.
The Hoosick Street Corridor Study is proposed by the City of Troy and funded through CDTC’s Community and Transportation Linkage Planning Program. This $80,000 study is included in the 2001-2002 Unified Planning Work Program as a planning activity. The City of Troy seeks proposals from qualified firms or individuals to conduct the Hoosick Street Phase II Corridor Study in the City of Troy, Rensselaer County, New York. The section of Hoosick Street targeted for detailed study includes the areas in proximity of a two-block bandwidth along to NYS Rte.7 (Hoosick St.) in Troy between the Hudson River on the west and the City boundary on the east.
A selection committee comprised of selected staff members from the City of Troy, NYSDOT and CDTC will review the proposals.
The consultant will be required to coordinate the project with the City of Troy and NYSDOT in regard to existing agreements concerning NYS Route 7 in Troy, NY. The City has already funded and completed a preliminary Phase I Hoosick St. Corridor Study (February 2000). This study concluded that, “Physically enhancing the existing Corridor to promote pedestrian safety, improve local traffic access and circulation, minimize impacts of arterial traffic, preserve the character of residential neighborhoods and mitigate land use conflicts” should be the preferred alternative. This linkage study will seek to take findings from the previous study and develop them in order to have a product that can guide the City’s future planning efforts.
