A new plan is in the works to alleviate some of the traffic by Crossgates Mall, with a new roundabout.

The ramp just off the Northway near the mall exit has been a magnet for high traffic for decades. Especially when it’s the holiday season, traffic gets backed up well north of the exit.
The new roundabout is planned to be built near a traffic light directly off the highway.
The project by the CDTA is set to begin on April 3, and is expected to wrap up by the end of July.
