CANTON -- The Health Initiative has initiated a project looking at the safety of North Country roads and sidewalks which includes Judson Street.

Working with Canton’s Complete Streets Committee and Clarkson University, an assessment of Judson Street’s pedestrian and transportation patterns and infrastructure will be conducted from Wednesday, June 12, through Friday, June 14.

During the assessment, Clarkson students will record the number of people using Judson Street’s roads and sidewalks from 7 a.m.-6 p.m., said a press release from the village.

All student workers involved in the project will wear high-visibility vests and IDs.

Clarkson students will also survey along Judson Street, which will involve minimal traffic control. Scheduling is weather dependent, but is not expected to take more than five days from now through mid-July.

Students may conduct a short door-to-door survey with residents to assess the community’s thoughts and concerns on the safety and walkability of Judson Street, the press release said.

They may also speak directly with some residents who live along Judson Street.

More details about scheduling will be posted at www.cantonny.gov as they are available, the press release said.
