[ARCHIVED] THANK YOU, NYS FOR REPAVING A LARGE PORTION OF DOBBS FERRY ROAD

The work the state did looks fantastic! This season NYS repaved Hillside Ave; Saw Mill River Road in Ardsley
NYS, facing budget issues, hadn't repaved a state owned road in Greenburgh for five years. This year was a great start! THANKS

THANK YOU, NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION FOR REPAVING  A LARGE SECTION OF DOBBS FERRY ROAD

THE SECTION REPAVED LOOKS FANTASTIC



In recent years many residents have complained about the condition of NYS owned roads located within the town of Greenburgh-potholes, craters, roads not maintained.

 

 And, in 2018 thirty six Greenburgh student interns organized a lobbying effort to persuade the state to repave roads within our town. The last time a NYS road located in the town was repaved was over five years ago.  The students met with state Department of Transportation officials, state lawmakers. They organized petition drives.


   I am very thankful that the New York State Transportation Department was responsive to  our concerns. This past week they completed  repaving Dobbs Ferry Road from Sprain Parkway to Route 119 --one of the most pothole filled roads in the town. Earlier this summer the state repaved Hillside Ave in Greenburgh (near Town Hall) and Saw Mill River Road in Ardsley.  


  A big thank you to NYS officials for the excellent job they did with milling and repaving these important roads. There are still many roads in Greenburgh and in our villages that need repaving. Parts of Dobbs Ferry Road ((close to Saw Mill River Road); Central Ave; Saw Mill River Road closer to Elmsford; KNollwood from Payne to Old Tarrytown Road; W Hartsdale from Central Ave to firehouse are just some state roads in Greenburgh needing work. And -there are additional roads in the villages like Broadway needing repaving.


  But - what NYS did in 2020 was a great start. And, their work is appreciated.  I was also impressed with the team that the state assigned to the work within Greenburgh. Dina Colavito, Engineer in charge of the NYS Department of Transportation kept town officials informed of the status of the work they were doing, responded to calls and did a fabulous job.  Thank you.  NYS doesn't have tons of money to spend to address all our road needs but their employees really try hard.
