The purpose of the virtual meeting is twofold: To present the research and get public input. The City’s consultant team will provide a project overview and present the proposed truck route alternatives under consideration. Also, the public will be invited to provide input on proposed alternate routes, as well as how nearby communities may be impacted by possible route changes via participant polls and a question and answer session at the end of the presentation.
The City of Hudson is conducting this Truck Route Traffic Feasibility Study to propose improved routes that ensure the safety of community, truck drivers, and businesses alike. Indeed, while New York State truck drivers support their families and supply Hudson and surrounding communities with crucial goods, the route they traverse was designed for a previous era. Using the study, the City of Hudson will then work with surrounding towns, Columbia County, New York State, and a variety of stakeholders to help make sure that the new route improves outcomes for all.
