12 Fiore Cir Latham, NY 12110, USAseveral deep potholes (7 large, 5 small) on Fiore Circle off of Johnson Road. I have taken pictures of the most dire ones however the whole street should be surveyed for refill. It is a relatively small street (13 houses) and all issues could likely be addressed in a single visit.
219-225 Wade Road Ext Latham, NY, 12110, USAIn recent years, the through-traffic has increased exponentially along the Wade Road Extension corridor. Crumbling pavement, narrow travel lanes, poor curve geometry, and poor lighting are causing drivers to veer dangerously into oncoming lanes. The Town of Colonie (or whoever is responsible for the maintenance, upkeep, and paving of this section), need to re-evaluate the situation, so that motorists will have a safer pathway to and from the Target Shopping Plaza.
Northway Northbound Route 7 On-Ramp Latham, New York
Highway on-ramp metering signal lights would be a tremendous improvement to the horrendous backups on the Route 7 off-ramp to the Interstate 87 northbound on-ramp.
In numerous studies available all over the internet, it has been shown that it can reduce traffic congestion by 30%-40%.
If the Capital District truly wants to reduce traffic backups on the many bottlenecks around the region, it will seriously help the citizens by installing ramp-meters on these crucial highway ramps!
904 New Loudon Road Latham, New YorkThe MUTCD states that one more "DO NOT ENTER" and one "WRONG WAY - GO BACK" signs are required on this ramp.
320 Old Nisk Rd Latham 12110, United StatesThis road needs shoulders for safety. They exist closer to 155, and there is some ROW there from a casual inspection. This isn’t 1985 anymore. This road sees well over 4000 vehicles in the peak hour. Even if it involves relocating water lines, do it for safety’s sake!
137 Sparrowbush Rd Latham, NY 12110, USA
There is a sign at the corner of Sparrowbush Road and Wade Road Extension that says, "State Law: Don't Drive on Shoulder".
This sign is incorrect.
Signs stating "Don't Drive on Shoulder" are used for roads where people illegally utilize the shoulder for a very long stretch as if it were another lane.
This is NOT what is occurring here, and the sign is NOT APPROPRIATE at this intersection.
At this location, the corner strip of the shoulder seems to be being used by motorists as if it were a "Right-Turn" lane.
Therefore, either a "No Turn on Red" sign should be at this location instead, or an additional "Right-Turn" lane should be constructed, with proper lane markings and right-turn arrows.
This would allow westbound traffic on Sparrowbush Road to turn right onto Sparrowbush Road northbound without having to wait needlessly behind other traffic which is going straight onto Wade Road Extension.
I don't understand why this was not designed correctly to begin with. It is very poor planning to build a traffic intersection without taking this into account.
REDESIGN THIS INTERSECTION CORRECTLY!!!!!
ADD A RIGHT-TURN LANE!!!!· Reported by Anonymous · Flag Flagged
231 Wade Road Extension Latham, New YorkThe new Wade Road Extension/Sparrowbush Road connection near the shopping center is very bumpy and crumbling. Drivers are dangerously swerving to avoid the deep potholes. They are also unaware as to which lane they are supposed to drive in, because the pavement markings are not visible anymore.· Reported by anonymous · Flag Flagged
861 Troy Schenectady Rd Latham, NY
The highway department has done a nice job resurfacing Route 7, however they have not finished painting the lines along the shoulders/curbs on the right side of the travel lanes.
There are many stretches of this road without street lights at night, and it is hard to see how close your vehicle is to the shoulder without a clearly-marked white line.
There are many roads in the Capital District where this is also the case, such as on New Loudon Road (Route 9) in Latham.
Why are the white lines near the shoulder not always completed?· Reported by Anonymous · Flag Flagged
Highway 7 Latham, New YorkRamp-meters are needed along this ramp from Route 7 to Interstate 87. They would improve traffic flow, and stop the horrendous backups that occur due to the extreme volume of traffic at rush hours.· Reported by guest · Flag Flagged
