About The Project:
The Capital District Transportation Authority (CDTA) will be constructing a new roundabout for access to and from the I-87 Northway as part of its Purple Line BusPlus Project. There will also be traffic signal upgrades on Crossgates Mall Road, repaving, restriping and updated landscaping. These improvements will help with the flow of buses in and around Crossgates Mall and future developments in the area.
Construction on the project will be completed in a phased approach to provide the least amount of disruption to the community and daily traffic patterns. The first phase of construction will begin on April 3rd while the fifth and final phase is scheduled to wrap up at the end of July. Just before completion, the new roundabout, adjacent sections of Crossgates Mall Road, and the on-and-off ramps will be temporarily closed (July 10 and 11) for paving and lane striping.
