In recent months town leaders have been working with a group of officials, residents, cyclists, pedestrians, environmentalists who would like the Route 119 corridor to become more pedestrian/bicycle friendly. A study is taking place that takes a look at the corridor from Route 9 (South Broadway) in Tarrytown to Route 22 (South Broadway) in White Plains. Greenburgh includes a large portion of the Route 119 corridor. The plan, when finalized and implemented, will provide safe, inviting facilities for people of all ages, abilities and modes to travel along and across Route 119.
The goal of the study is to develop a complete streets plan that will:
Provide a safe and integrated pedestrian network, and connected places to walk along and across Route 119 Provide a safe and continuous bicycle path Enhance multimodal access throughout corridor Address parking, snow removal, maintenance needs "Quick Build" techniques Attract people using the New NY Bridge path to shops and restaurants
We're glad residents, developers and government officials have been meeting to provide their insights at the study's first round of public meetings.
IN CASE YOU HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO ATTEND PREVIOUS MEETINGS BUT HAVE SUGGESTIONS REGARDING ROUTE 119....
If you or people you know weren't able to attend, or you remembered something after you left, use the following online map to tell us what's on your mind regarding Route 119:
The wikimap will remain open until Feb 9.
The public input, both in-person and online, will help guide the Steering Committee and the consultants we hired, Nelson\Nygaard, in developing proposals to improve the safety and efficiency of this crucial corridor.
Want some additional context? The meeting materials have been posted to the project's website.
