City officials say nearly $400,000 in state grants will go to revitalize the Saratoga Street corridor from Cohoes Boulevard to Spring Street.

Money will also be used for research on two environmental projects that are designed to remove storm water from the city’s combined sewer system, as part of a multi-year, and regional initiative.

These grants announced today are in addition to two awards recently announced totaling nearly $1.9 million to restore the historic Cohoes Music Hall and Visitors Center building, with a focus on clean energy.
