October 2017 Update

Another year has passed so what is the latest on the 787 study? Well, CDTC and the study partners, particularly NYSDOT, have spent much of the last year further exploring one long term concept per the scope of work for the project. This exploration has necessitated the use of CDTC's regional travel model and has required a number of thoughtful discussions and analysis with NYSDOT staff.

CDTC and the consultant team, led by CHA, have been preparing a draft report for review by the study advisory committee. The committee should be able to meet in November at which point the public meeting should be scheduled later this fall. Check back for additional updates soon. In the meantime, take a look at this article from the All Over Albany blog posted in August 2017.

November 2016 Study Update

It's been a full year since the study team released a summary of what was heard at the summer 2015 public workshops. So what's been happening?

The project team has been working with NYSDOT and the corridor communities on the development of strategies and an updated project purpose and need statement to satisfy federal requirements. This has been a lengthy, thoughtful process due to the complexity of the study area that we hope will be coming to an end in the next few months. Check back soon for an updated schedule as the team will be going back to the public in the first half of 2017 with our findings for feedback.

Preliminary Workshop Summary Available

The first glimpse into the ideas shared by the public at two public workshops held in June and through online and Textizen surveys through July 2015 is now available. A two page summary document highlights facts about who attended the workshops, where attendees live vs. where they work and the most used words by attendees in the written comment sheets. A summary of the emphasis areas of greatest interest to attendees is also provided, indicating that access for bicycles and pedestrians and economic development are most important. Additional summary materials will be developed as stakeholder outreach is completed in September 2015.
