Don't Miss the June Meeting!

The New York State County Highway Superintendents' annual June gathering will be held virtually on June 8, 2021. This annual program will begin with a Superintendents' Business Meeting followed by a one-hour CEC session and virtual networking. The schedule follows:

Keeping things Rollin' on the River (Road)
Presented by Steve Godlewski, PE, Project Manager, Creighton Manning Engineering

The River Road/Rosendale Road intersection was a longstanding bottleneck that was known for single-handedly backing up traffic for a mile each weekday. The presentation will review the evolution of the Schenectady County DPW’s efforts to address this congestion and improve safety for the traveling public. Key topics covered include the public involvement process, design principles applied to a rural/suburban roundabout, before/after traffic operations, the impact of COVID-19 on the project and coordination with the contracting community to reduce costs.
