The city of Albany is in the second phase of traffic improvements in one of the most congested parts of town.

The project includes widening Nottingham Way from Stuart Avenue to Ledo Road along with signal improvements and lane changes.

Deerfield Windsor School agreed to provide additional right of way from its property... But the city is still meeting with other owners including the Stuart Place Homeowners Association.

"There are several adjacent land loaners that we have to deal with and we're taking different options to them to look at it and see what might work best for them as well as for us," said Wes Smith, Albany Assistant City Manager.

Preliminary cost estimates won't be available until a final plan is selected.

The city is in the process of obtaining appraisals so negotiations can begin with property owners.
