The city of Albany is getting more than $3 million in state funding to turn a lightly traveled interstate ramp into an elevated park giving pedestrians and bicyclists access to the Hudson River.

The investigation into a pedestrian fatality on the stretch of 787 that runs through Cohoes has concluded. WAMC's Capital Region Bureau Chief Dave Lucas spoke with Cohoes Mayor Shawn Morse.

When a teenage pedestrian was killed crossing the dangerous highway that runs through his Hudson River city in June, Cohoes Mayor Shawn Morse said enough is enough. Now, Morse wants that stretch of 787 re-made into a boulevard.  Change is already on the way.

In New York’s Capital Region, "getting from here to there" has long meant traveling by car, bus or taxi. Times have changed: more people have taken to bike riding and walking — and that has raised new safety concerns.
