Crosswalk Installation Approved at Busy Intersection Near Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Schools

BALLSTON — The Saratoga County Board of Supervisors on May 21 approved funding to install a crosswalk at the intersection of Kingsley Road and Lake Hill Road in the Town of Ballston. 

The resolution authorizes Saratoga County Department of Public Works (DPW) to contract with DLC Electric LLC for construction services associated with this crosswalk project connecting the only county-owned sidewalk with a town-owned sidewalk. 

Saratoga County DPW will administer this project in partnership with the Town of Ballston. The Town of Ballston will pay $114,000 and the County will contribute $31,518 for the entire project. 

The intersection is frequented by many Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake students. 

 “Addressing the intersection of Lakehill and Kingsley with a crosswalk and signals is a great step forward for safe pedestrian access in the hamlet of Burnt Hills,” said Superintendent of Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Central Schools Patrick M. McGrath, Jr. “Anyone trying to turn at this intersection recognizes that it has an awkward angle that makes it tricky. This intersection is highly traversed by students walking between schools or to commercial establishments on Route 50.” 

Updates about the crosswalk installation will be reported by the Saratoga County Facebook page.
