Suny At Albany Albany, NYThe traffic lights on Washington Ave. eastbound at the easternmost exit from the UAlbany campus are misaligned. Both are directed to the right of the access road. It is probably not possible to move the poles on which the lights are mounted, but it should be possible to rotate the lights facing the access road from position A as shown on the attached map to position B so that they actually are directed at the exiting lane of traffic. The lights are still somewhat visible in their current orientation, but this small change would make them much more so.· Reported by David Wagner · Flag Flagged
Intersection Of Central Ave And Everett Rd Albany, NYCars turning LEFT onto Everett Rd from Central Ave repeatedly run the red lights, sometimes 4 or 5 cars in a row. This is due to bad design, it is really hard to turn onto Everett from Central. It is also almost impossible for pedestrian traffic to cross Everett Rd at this intersection, as their green lights are entirely taken up by people turning left or right onto Everett.
S Pearl St Albany, NY
A recent Times Union article stated that one of the reasons why this traffic light is still here (even though the side road connecting to South Pearl St. is currently unused) is to aid pedestrians in the area.
I have never seen any pedestrians crossing South Pearl St. at this location! And furthermore, if they are so worried about pedestrians, then why don't they install a proper crosswalk and crossing signals there?
I think their reason is hogwash!
This traffic light needs to be REMOVED AT ONCE, because all it does is aggravates backups (usually caused by the hundreds of slow-moving tractor-trailer trucks hogging up the road), and it serves NO PURPOSE!!!
The entrance to the Doane School is NOT USED ANYMORE!!!
GET RID OF THIS TRAFFIC LIGHT!!
57 Hurlbut St Albany, NYTraffic light turns red even though there are no cars on side street and no pedestrians and school is not in session.
Waste of time and fuel waiting at light for non-existent vehicles on side street.
Fix the timing on this @#$% light. Make it a trip light or a smart light. Actually, the light isn't needed at all. The street is one way. So, vehicles on side street stop then turn right when no traffic is coming. Not a high traffic volume area. Why is there a light to begin with?· Reported by Red Light Fred · Flag Flagged
1420-1422 Washington Ave Albany, NY 12206, USAThe traffic light at this intersection is on a timer instead of traffic sensors, leaving vehicles wasting time, money and fuel unnecessarily, especially at off hours with low traffic flow.
I reported this last fall and they said they were waiting for better weather to repair it. It is almost June, the weather looks fine to me now, when will it be repaired?· Reported by Wayne Skala · Flag Flagged
16-98 N Mohawk St Cohoes, NY 12047, USA
This traffic light should be reprogrammed to flash after 10:00 PM. There's really not that much traffic here at night anyway.
Many other intersections in Cohoes now have blinking lights at night and they work fine. Plus this is only a 3-way intersection, which makes it even easier.
502 New Loudon Rd Loudonville, NY
When headed southbound on US Route 9 (New Loudon Road), there should be a Left-Turn arrow on the traffic light at the intersection of Spring Street Road.
Between the hours of 3PM and 7PM, this intersection becomes a NIGHTMARE because traffic just does not MOVE!
A Left-Turn arrow is severely needed at this location, and would improve traffic flow and safety.
120 Colvin Ave Albany, NY 12206, USAleft turn arrow. central ave west left turn to colvin ave stays green for 5 seconds. only allowing 2-3 cars to turn left onto colvin ave.
