  • 123-203 Jordan Road Troy, New York - Rensselaer County
    Every winter, every snowfall, Jordan Road is poorly plowed. It's a running joke among Tech Park workers that one can drive on clear roads with no issue from as far away as Schenectady or Saratoga, but as soon as you hit Jordan Road, prepare to slide!
    While plowing is always done, it seems a layer of snow or ice always remains. Sometimes sand is used in place of salt and after a day of thawing and freezing, glaciers of sandy ice can remain for days. It's such a huge contrast to the excellent work the State DOT does on Route 4, that even after 10 years of working in the Tech Park, I'm still amazed every time I make the turn onto Jordan Road in those conditions. Is there anything the Town of North Greenbush can do to improve it's plowing procedures on this road? It really becomes a serious issue when pedestrians are taken into account. Since sidewalks were apparently not invented yet back in the 1980s when RPI built the park, all pedestrians have to walk in the road. The fact that relatively few are crazy enough to do it in snowy conditions is likely the only thing that has prevented a fatality caused by an out-of-control sliding vehicle.
  • 164 River St Troy, NY 12180, USA - Troy
    It would help the 8 businesses at this end of River Street if cars could turn right off Congress street instead of being forced over the bridge to Watervliet.

  • New York 142 Troy, NY 12182, USA - Troy
    This entire area of road is absolutely crumbling!! The pavement isn't marked well enough, the traffic signals are inadequate, and the entire series of intersections is an absolute nightmare to travel through! It needs a complete reconstruction immediately!
  • 158-176 New York 66 Troy, NY 12180, USA - Troy
    Can Troy learn how to actually pave a road? The pot holes are like moon crater and it's dangerous to drive around them... for a city of it's size, it paves roads like amateurs
  • Oakwood Ave From Frear Pk To Hoosick St. Troy, NY - Frear Park

    Oakwood Ave is a very, very busy truck route. Along with 1000's of passenger vehicles, 18 wheelers travel up and down this road all day and night.

    Most residents of Oakwood ave have on-street parking only.

    Since the city only pushes the snow toward the curb (into our parking spaces) and doesn't REMOVE the snow, residents are forced to park partially in the travel lane!

    My vehicle was hit yesterday. I was parked as far out of the travel lane as I could get. My wheels were in the snowbank. The now banks are encroaching into the street roughly 2-4 feet away from the curbs.

    The police had to waste time to come make out a report when they could have been doing something productive.

    Does the city have any big snow blowing machines (like Albany has) that chew up and spit out the snow into an adjacent dump truck? If Troy has snow removal equipment, why isn't it being utilized? Especially, in busy, dangerous places like Oakwood Ave.

  • 28-38 1st St Troy, NY 12180, USA - Troy
    The frat house backing Frear Alley has a kid living there who thinks peeling out as he enters the alley from Congress St (very dangerous, people walking and that is a BLIND turn from Congress, no way he can tell if someone is there) and then floors it until he gets to the rear of the frat house.
    Your frat's partying is loud at times but not out of control and I appreciate that, but this type of juvenile and dangerous behavior will not be tolerated.
    I will file a complaint with your frat, RPI and the police in the coming days as I am sure you will not realize the consequences of your actions on your own.
    Welcome To Troy, dude!
  • 74-98 2nd St Troy, NY 12180, USA - Troy
    Section of road in front of Library/Sage Campus is completely destroyed, and is like driving over some test course or rumble strip for about 1/10th of a mile. Between Division & Congress.
  • Frear Park Rd Troy, NY 12180, USA - Frear Park
    Dump created @ Frear Park after ice storm in December 2009 still not cleaned up 1 1/2 yrs later.
  • 580 Jordan Rd Troy, NY 12180, USA - Rensselaer County
    Is it really necessary to have a 4-way stop here? The traffic is not heavy enough that those on Jordan Road should have to stop to allow traffic off of Willowbrook to turn left.
  • 1-35 Upper Mannix Rd East Greenbush, NY 12061, USA - Rensselaer County
    This is a very dangerous intersection. With the East Greenbush Tech Park expanding traffic backs up while people wait to make a left turn onto route 4.
