Schenectady Transit-Oriented Design Study (State Street)


In partnership with River Street Planning, Susan G. Blickstein led the analysis of pedestrian and bicycle needs and improvements on State Street, part of a future BRT system. SGB developed the major Complete Streets concepts for this project including bicycle lanes, pedestrian refuge areas, bicycle parking and other enhancements linked to safety needs. Proposed concepts were also analyzed based on AASHTO and NYSDOT guidelines. As part of this effort, SGB facilitated community and stakeholder workshops, including study area walking tours with neighborhood representatives.
