The City of Hudson is working with MJ Engineering & Land Surveying, P.C. (MJ) to perform a destination and origin study for trucks traveling through Hudson. New York State truck routes traverse the City of Hudson and deleteriously impact the community’s quality of life and economic vitality. The study will collect data and propose alternative truck routes. Using the study, the City of Hudson will then work with surrounding towns, Columbia County, New York State, and a variety of stakeholders to build consensus for modification and improvement to the truck route.
“Residents need a more walkable, bikeable city, with safe streets that are accessible to all,” says Mayor Kamal Johnson. “The high-volume of large trucks through dense residential neighborhoods is the wrong route and this study will help create solutions.”
