PROGRESS REPORT--E HARTSDALE AVENUE PEDESTRIAN SAFETY INITIATIVES
Release Date: December 17, 2014

A few weeks ago  there was a pedestrian accident on E Hartsdale Ave.  Thankfully, the woman survived. I asked Greenburgh Police Chief Chris McNerney to have our traffic and safety division consider ways to make the avenue safer for pedestrians.  Prior to the accident some senior citizens recommended that the town prohibit bicycling on sidewalks.  Many elderly residents walk up and down the avenue. If a bicycle hits an elderly person it could cause serious injury. I am  hopeful that we will be able to implement this recommendation early in 2015.
 
Chief McNerney indicated that the town is  reviewing the safety of the East Hartsdale Avenue corridor. We are taking all recommendations from the public under advisement. Our Traffic and Safety Supervisor has initiated the following:
  • New lights were installed today
  • Old street light bulbs were replaced with High Intensity LED bulbs
  • Digital Speed Display signs were installed
  • When manpower permits, we are assigning a patrol car to the area to enforce the vehicle and traffic laws, with concentration on vehicles failing to yield to pedestrians
  • We have budgeted for several crosswalk beacons that will have a button for pedestrians to push to activate strobe lights to assist with pedestrian visibility and crossing.
 
We are studying the feasibility of additional safety measures. Our findings will be completed in early January.
