Potsdam Walk-Bike Enhancement Project

Clarkson University President Tony Collins (center), State Senator Joseph A. Griffo (left), and Village of Potsdam Mayor Ron Tischler broke ground for the Potsdam Walk-Bike Enhancement Project September 30, along with members of the Clarkson Cycling Club and Mike Klein '06, owner of Wear on Earth in Potsdam. Back row (left to right): Greg Nowak, Brendan Carberry, Andrew Romanazzi, Cullen Haskins, Alex McAndrew, Klein, Colin Lyle, Chris Menges, Reeve Chilton and Sean Mech.

The project will bring bike lanes, sidewalks, shared roadway signs and new pavement to Clarkson Ave. within the village. It will also fund repaving on Pine St.; shared roadway signs on Maple St., Pierrepont Ave., Elm St., and Main St.; and new sidewalks on Leroy St. from Bradley Dr. to May Rd. and on May Rd. from Leroy St. to the bank.

The $1.45 million project was applied for through the New York State Transportation Enhancement Program (TEP) and funded by the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).
