NY 146 western terminus.jpg

New York State Route 146 (NY 146) is a state highway in the Capital District of New York in the United States. It extends for 43 miles (69 km) from Gallupville at NY 443 to near Mechanicville at US 4 and NY 32. NY 146 is a major thoroughfare in the city of Schenectady, just outside of Albany. Most of the route follows an east–west alignment; however, the middle third of the route between Guilderland and Clifton Park runs in a more north–south manner in order to serve Schenectady. At one time, NY 146 had three spur routes; only one – NY 146A – still exists.
