Traffic Alert: Area Accelerated Paving Projects Set to Begin Soon

Paving is set to begin on Hoosick Street and Route 787. Construction on a $3.07 million project to repave Hoosick Street (Route 7) in Troy and Route 787 in Cohoes is scheduled to start next week.

The project will pave Route 787 in Cohoes from Tibbits Avenue near Green Island to Saratoga Street (Route 32) in Cohoes and Hoosick Street (Route 7) from 8th Street in Troy to Hillcrest Avenue in the Town of Brunswick.

Paving on the 1.8-mile stretch of Route 787 is scheduled to begin next week and continue through early October. Route 787 work will largely occur during weekday daytime hours using off-peak lane closures. Three Saturday daytime work sessions are also expected to occur. Both directions of Route 787 will remain open at all times, and all properties in the area will remain accessible for emergency vehicles.

Sidewalk work on Hoosick Street in Troy is scheduled to begin the week of Sept. 14, with paving of this 1.6-mile stretch to follow. Work will continue into November. To minimize impacts to traffic, all milling and paving on Hoosick Street will occur between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. Work on sidewalks may have isolated impacts to traffic between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Otherwise, all lanes on Hoosick Street will be open during daytime hours during NYSDOT’s work, and all properties in the area will remain accessible for emergency vehicles. Work on Hoosick Street will include installing sidewalk ramps to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The City of Troy also is performing a project on Hoosick Street to adjust drainage gates and manhole covers ahead of NYSDOT’s pavement resurfacing.

The contractor for this project is Rifenburg Construction, Inc., of Troy.
