If you're visiting Saratoga Springs this weekend, we want to remind you that the city employs pedestrian crosswalk lights to indicate when it's appropriate to cross a busy street. It is your responsibility as a pedestrian to pay attention to these signals. Nevertheless, under NY VTL §1151, Failure to Yield to a Pedestrian, the law states that even when there is no traffic signal or working signal, a driver must yield to a pedestrian crossing within a crosswalk. Also, whenever any vehicle has stopped to permit a pedestrian to cross the roadway, the driver of any other vehicle approaching from the rear may not pass or overtake the stopped vehicle. That means a driver of a vehicle must stop and stay stopped for a pedestrian crossing the roadway within any marked crosswalk. If you are in a crosswalk and a vehicle disobeys this traffic law, please note the license plate and vehicle description and call 584-1800 ASAP with your location and the vehicle's description and license number. We appreciate the cooperation of both pedestrians and drivers in this safety matter. Thank you.

Please be aware that National Grid plans to complete their gas line installation project, along Clinton St, within the next week (or by the end of next week - depending on any unforeseen delays). The final part of this project involves a road opening on the northern side of the Clinton St / Van Dam St intersection followed by a small test opening on State St (just north of Van Dam St). This road opening will require: (1) Lane closure of the westbound lane of Van Dam St (from approx Lawrence St to State St). The eastbound lane will be used for alternating eastbound and westbound traffic using flag persons at each end of the closure. (2) Clinton St will be closed at Pine Alley (eastbound traffic detoured to Waterbury St) (3) Clinton St will be closed at Walton St (northbound traffic detoured to Walton St - to avoid congestion with the alternating one way traffic on Van Dam St) Work is scheduled to begin at 7am on Thursday 11/1 and should only take approx 2 days. ** EXECT TRAFFIC DELAYS DURING THIS PROJECT**
