Hudson, unlike many surrounding communities, has retained two-lane roadways in much of its downtown. This has helped preserve the open spaces, historical buildings, and trees that the city values. However, the traffic congestion is considered a problem by many. Recent and future connector streets aim to reduce these problems. Another inconvenience to Hudsonites is the busy railroad passing through town. Two at-grade crossings, one on Hines Hill Road and the other on Stow Road, can lead to backups. The presence of the railroad, as well as the Turnpike, have limited new road construction due to the expense of crossing them.
