Town Of Malta Awards Bid for Complete Street Improvement on Route 9

Town Board Accepts Bid for Major Transportation Project to Improve Pedestrian Access, Increase Safety in Key Downtown Corridor

MALTA — The Malta Town Board accepted the bid of James H. Maloy, Inc. for a major "Complete Street" project. This project, focused on the reconfiguration of US Route 9 between the Stonebreak Road and Dunning Street roundabouts, is based on a multi-year study conducted by the Capital District Transportation Committee (CDTC), and the input of residents, first responders, and local small business. 

The project will improve pedestrian access between housing clusters and downtown businesses with significantly improved sidewalks. In addition, to provide greater pedestrian safety, a mid-span cross walk with a refuge island and rectangular rapid flashing beacons will facilitate pedestrian access to shops, residences and other establishments. Most important, this project will also mitigate traffic challenges at two increasingly busy intersections. 

Importantly, this improvement will be undertaken without a new general fund spending or commitments. The cost of the project is estimated at $1,665,000, to be funded by a New York State Multi-Modal Grant as well as Town of Malta mitigation fees collected in connection with past town developments to fund improvements needed to meet the needs created by
these developments. 

Supervisor Darren O'Connor said: "The plans will improve our downtown area dramatically. This project will enhance the walkability of the downtown area for the many residents of the area as well as visitors. It will also provide traffic calming and visually enrich a gateway to the town."
