Construction to start soon on major roadway

Local

Roadwork on Cohoes Boulevard will begin next week to make the road more pedestrian friendly.

This includes raised crosswalks, more landscaping, and shorter crosswalks. DOT officials say work zone speed limits have been posted for months in preparation. Still, News 10 caught some people going well above the posted limits.

Drivers should get used to the reduced speeds, as the DOT plans to permanently lower them once roadwork is complete.
