The meeting will review the study project and timeline. M.J. Engineering and Land Surveying, P.C  will present the origin and destination data collected on truck traffic in Hudson. They will also review the anticipated next steps for this study. Afterward, there will be an opportunity to ask questions about the data collected and to share personal experiences about truck traffic in Hudson. The report on existing conditions will be refined based on this feedback. 

For those that can’t attend the meeting, the presentation will be posted to the city website.

NEXT STEPS

Once the current conditions report is finalized, the project team will study and propose alternate routes that reduce harms and provide consideration to how nearby stakeholders may be impacted by alternate truck routes. Once the alternate routes have been studied, there will be an additional opportunity for public feedback. In addition to the public information meetings, the City and the consultant team will be organizing stakeholder group meetings and conducting an online community survey. 

Using the data collected and proposed alternatives, the City of Hudson will then work with surrounding Towns, Columbia County, New York State, and stakeholders to build consensus for modification and improvement to the existing truck route.  

The City of Hudson is conducting this Truck Route Traffic Feasibility Study to assess the impacts associated with the New York State designated truck route that traverses the City of Hudson and deleteriously influences the community’s quality of life and economic vitality in a number of ways.  The study will measure and report truck traffic through the city, inclusive of the origin, destination, and volume of truck traffic. The origin and destination data will be combined with an assessment of the environmental (public health), physical (infrastructure degradation), and social (neighborhoods and residents) effects of truck traffic.
