Reimagine Your Route-Provide your Ideas for for the Future of Columbia Street

Columbia Street Redesign image

The City of Cohoes hosted its second community design workshop on September 28, 2023, for the Columbia Street Safe Pathways to School project. This initiative involves the redesign and modernization of public facilities along Columbia Street, spanning from Mohawk Street to Trull Street and from Broadway to Baker Avenue. During the meeting, community residents had the opportunity to examine preliminary plans that were developed following our March meeting earlier this year and provide their valuable feedback.

We strongly encourage the public to review these plans, which encompass new sidewalks, street trees, curbing, pavement, striping, and traffic control facilities. Your input is essential as we work towards refining these plans before commencing construction bidding in the winter of 2023/2024.

If you have any comments, questions, or would like to review the plans in person, please don't hesitate to reach out to the Planning Department at 518-233-2130 or send an email to

Your participation and insights are greatly appreciated.
