Sam Raudins reports for Columbia-Greene Media that after a truck traffic study, an engineering firm has two proposals for truck routes in Hudson for the Common Council to consider. MJ Engineering & Land Surveying, P.C. recommends one route using portions of Route 9, and the other using parts of state Route 66 and Route 9H to reduce truck traffic in Hudson by between 26 and 40 percent. The options would cost between $1.4-3.1 million. Mayor Kamal Johnson said in a statement, “By using one of the two alternate routes, trucks will be where they can operate most effectively and safely: on routes that do not traverse dense residential neighborhoods.” The story does not say what action, if any, the Common Council might take with the results of the traffic study, and alternate route proposals.
