"Constituents Come First"

Carman Road Roundabout Update

Construction on the roundabout at Carman Rd and Lydius St. has been delayed. Originally slated to begin in April 2021, it is likely constuction will not begin until winter and last through the majority of 2022. The overall project will include work from Coons Road on Carman Road to the Curry Road roundabout in Rotterdam.

Because of public input about the need for a possible second roundabout at the Interstate entrance just down the road from the Carman-Lydius intersection, design work for a roundabout there has been done. There has been no state DOT announcement yet on the status of that potential roundabout. It has been my hope that a roundabout there would be part of the final solution.

The old Nedco pharmacy eyesore at Carman and Lydius is set to be demolished.

As a Lydius Street resident, I know how frustrating waiting through red lights at Carman and Lydius has been. That's why I first started to push for some suitable upgrade there while on the Town Board over a decade ago. Glad to see relief is on its way.
