Warehouse Lane Access Improvements

CHA is providing engineering services to construct a new bypass roadway connecting NY Route 119 and the eastbound I-287 Exit 1 exit ramp to Warehouse Lane. This project aims to alleviate truck traffic congestion and safety on NY Routes 119 and 9A.

Traffic data collection and analysis were a critical part of the project since it was performed during the COVID-19 pandemic. CHA had to perform extensive data analytics for the 15 intersections within the study area. This included analysis of historical data, use of transportation Big Data solutions like StreetLight Data, and field-collected data at critical locations to develop reliable estimates of exiting traffic data and use that to forecast future traffic volumes for the project area.
