Empire State Roads


In late 2009, as part of the OpenStreetMap Project, I commenced a systematic review of County Routes in the Capital District of New York, using the County Routes page of Empire State Roads as a guide. In the course of the review, a number of discrepancies have been identified. This page serves as a summary of discrepancies detected to date.

Albany County

Reviewed starting late 2009, ongoing

160Old Niskayuna Road is no longer signed as a CR
Sicker Road on the east side of the Airport is no longer signed as a CR.
161George Street in Green Island is no longer signed as a CR

Rensseler County

Reviewed late 2009/early 2010

79Name is Blue Factory Road, not Blue Factory Hill Road

103A section of Pine Valley Road from Spicer Road (CR 105) running partway to NY 7 (42.866,-73.369) is not maintained to County Route standards and the signage suggests it is no longer a County route. This leaves a gap in CR 103.
