The Adirondack/Glens Falls Transportation Council is currently developing its annual work program for the upcoming State Fiscal Year (April 2020 – March 2021). The goal of our program is to work with our member municipalities and the public to maximize the value and performance of our regional surface transportation system through the collaborative identification and implementation of plans, policies, and improvements that consider all modes of travel. The annual update to the work program allows the Council to entertain new priorities that may have emerged over the past year and reconsider candidates previously submitted but not executed due to resource limitations. A/GFTC is requesting project candidates for SFY 2020-2021. Project requests are due from our municipalities by 11/29/2019.
