CDTC Executive Director discusses planned I-787 study
Interstate 787 carries tens of thousands of motorists in and out of Albany every day.

New York State plans to use $5 million in federal funding to support a planning study that would consider the future of the roadway.
The Capital District Transportation Committee, which completed its own I-787/Hudson Waterfront Corridor Study in 2018, is partnering with the state in the effort.
