The Town of Greenburgh, along with the Villages of Elmsford and Tarrytown, and the City of White Plains were the recipients of an intermunicipal grant in the amount of $250,000 from the New York State Thruway Authority as part of a Community Benefits Program Agreement associated with the New NY Bridge Project.
The grant will fund a Route 119 Complete Street Design Plan focusing on opportunities to update the Rt. 119 corridor with pedestrian/cycling/vehicular safety measures. Together with a Consortium of municipal representatives and local residents, the selected consulting team will draw from existing studies and plans, public meetings, and technical expertise to pilot and document a practical plan that can be submitted for final engineering before July 2018.
This project will result in a design that supports high quality access to the new New York Bridge and existing trails crossing Route 119, highways and high volume junctions, as well as adjacent communities, while providing continuous active transportation connectivity, improved safety, and better multi-modal access for local business and residential areas.
