Brevator Complete Street Project

Brevator Street

Project Description

The Brevator Complete Street Project will transform a wide, vehicle-oriented street into a multi-modal corridor between two of Albany's prominent arterial roads: Washington Avenue and Western Avenue. The project will retrofit Brevator Street to include new pedestrian and bicycle facilities, traffic calming, and Bus Rapid Transit service that will serve nearby educational and job centers, and high-traffic bus lines along Washington and Western Avenues. By transforming Brevator into a complete street, the City of Albany will decrease vehicle trips, greenhouse gas emissions, and make walking, bicycling and transit safer and more attractive as primary transportation options.

The Planning Department is working in conjunction with the City's Department of General Services and Division of Engineering, along with our selected consultant.
