A successful radical remake along a busy stretch of Albany’s Madison Avenue will extend to where the street meets Lark and Delaware further downtown. WAMC's Capital Region Bureau Chief Dave Lucas was at the College of St. Rose Thursday night for a public meeting on phase two of the “road diet.”

Albany is forging ahead with plans to radically remake a busy stretch of Madison Avenue. WAMC's Capital Region Bureau Chief Dave Lucas was at the College of St. Rose Wednesday night for a public meeting on the “road diet.”

This weekend University at Albany Students will pitch in a neighborhood clean-up initiative.

On Sunday UAlbany students will be in the Pine Hills section of Albany to assist with the annual spring clean-up. Organizers say the event illustrates the cooperation between residents and the many students who live in the popular neighborhood.

The clean-up will be held from noon to 3 p.m., rain or shine, and will begin at the entrance to Albany's Ridgefield Park on Partridge Street, just below Myrtle Avenue.
