Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R,C,I-Schaghticoke) today commended local officials and the New York State Department of Transportation (DOT) on their recent announcement that the entire stretch of Hoosick Street within the City of Troy will receive utility upgrades and resurfacing.
“I commend the DOT, the City of Troy and National Grid on today’s announcement that repaving and utility upgrades will be happening on Hoosick Street,” McLaughlin said. “Hoosick Street is the second busiest road in the Capital Region, and coupled with the extreme low temperatures the past two winters, residents have been dealing with an extraordinary amount of potholes and ice wedging. I am pleased that most of the repairs will occur at night so as not to hinder the road’s large volume of traffic during rush hours. Infrastructure is the backbone of a strong economy, and repairs such as these will help residents safely commute to home and work, create jobs, and make the Capital Region more attractive to prospective residents.”
Milling and paving will only be allowed between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m., according to Brian Viggiani, Capital Region public information officer for the DOT, and the street will have at least four lanes open on weekdays between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Assemblyman McLaughlin represents the 107th district, which consists of parts of Rensselaer, Columbia and Washington counties. For more information,
