The goal of the Champlain Bridge Roadway Improvements Project is to better align the roadway features with the surrounding characteristics and cultural setting. The project will enhance the sense of place and awareness to the environmental, cultural, and aesthetic contexts of the Crown Point State Historic Site, Crown Point Campground & Day Use Area, and the Champlain Bridge. The existing roadway has wide shoulders and travel lane widths, and a quick transition in posted speed. The traffic calming measures and landscaping features proposed in this project aim to integrate this portion of NYS Route 185 with the recreational and culturally sensitive surrounding area. These proposed improvements will provide a well-integrated roadway that promotes safety and continuity.
