ATC expands to take in city street

February 13, 2008

Albany -- If you're used to cutting through the campus of Albany Technical College, you'll have to find a new route starting next week.

Lowe Road will be cut off to traffic beginning Monday morning. 

The college is in the process of rerouting the road to go behind building D, so students don't have to risk walking across the busy street.

 "Albany Tech has traditionally been a collection of buildings," says Joe Dan Baker, VP for Academic Affairs.    

"So what we really need is an actual campus and right now we have a couple of buildings on that side of Lowe Road and our students cross back and forth with all the traffic- as you see a car just went by there- it's dangerous and it's not conducive to good practices with the students."

The Lowe Road re-route project will cost almost $400,000 and is being paid for primarily with Special tax dollars.  It began in December and should wrap up by the end of March.
