The Livingston AvenueBridge connecting Albany to the area South of the Forbes Road boat launch isundergoing redesign by the State Department of Transportation, and will bereplaced beginning in 2017. It is unclear if the pedestrian path across thebridge will be replaced as well. Advocates are working to ensure that the newriver crossing will feature a walkway that allows for a safe, accessible,connection between the Albany and Rensselaer waterfronts.

On Thursday, December 15,the Livingston Avenue Railroad Bride Coalition (LARBC) will hold our secondorganizer’s meeting to discuss ways to encourage community organizations andleaders to get involved in the campaign. Our meeting will held at 5:30pmin the fourth floor conference room of the RensselaerTrain Station, located at 525 East Street. There will be a shortpresentation about the bridge and the coalition’s efforts, followed bydiscussion about advocacy, discussion about how to best reach out tostakeholders, and our next steps.  Our first organizer’s meeting was heldin Albany on October 26th. We hope to increase awareness andparticipation of this effort  on the Rensselaer side of the Hudson
