Summer Dig At Albany's Washington Park

Work crews in the city of Albany have been quite busy in the area of Washington Park that brushes up against South Lake Avenue —  right across from the site of the August 2016 sinkhole that opened up and swallowed a small SUV,  prompting a citywide emergency. The new construction activity brings great engineering and technological changes to Washington Park Lake. WAMC's Capital Region Bureau Chief Dave Lucas spoke with Albany City Water Commissioner Joe Coffey about the project.

Dave Lucas is WAMC’s Capital Region Bureau Chief. Born and raised in Albany, he’s been involved in nearly every aspect of local radio since 1981. Before joining WAMC, Dave was a reporter and anchor at WGY in Schenectady. Prior to that he hosted talk shows on WYJB and WROW, including the 1999 series of overnight radio broadcasts tracking the JonBenet Ramsey murder case with a cast of callers and characters from all over the world via the internet. In 2012, Dave received a Communicator Award of Distinction for his WAMC news story "Fail: The NYS Flood Panel," which explores whether the damage from Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee could have been prevented or at least curbed. Dave began his radio career as a “morning personality” at WABY in Albany.
