N Washington sidewalk will enable residents to walk safely from W Hartsdale Ave to Central Aveestimated completion of sidewalk: April, 2023miles of additional sidewalks planned
GOOD NEWS---THE PROMISED SIDEWALK ON NORTH WASHINGTON AVE WILL START
retaining wall work to start next week
SIDEWALK CONSTRUCTION TO START FEBRUARY 13 AND BE FINISHED BY LATE APRIL
A number of years ago residents who live on North Washington Ave and some of the surrounding streets took a walk on North Washington. Many residents encouraged the town to build a new sidewalk on the street. We had just completed construction of a sidewalk on Columbia and felt this would be another important pedestrian safety improvement. North Washington connects from West Hartsdale Ave to Central Ave.
I am pleased to advise you that construction of the promised sidewalk will commence on February 13. There will be some inconveniences and traffic delays during the construction but we will do whatever we can to minimize the disruptions. The construction is anticipated to last till the end of April. Con Tech will be working on a retaining wall starting next week which is expected to be complete by February 20th. We think that when the work is completed it will be much safer for pedestrians.
A big thank you to those who have advocated for this sidewalk over the years. I hope that you will be pleased with the quality of the work.
WE have started planning for the new sidewalk to be built on West Hartsdale Ave. Construction of that sidewalk should start within two years. Another sidewalk will be built on Dobbs Ferry Road. We received grants from NYS and the federal government (Senator Andrea Stewart Cousins and former Congressman Mondaire Jones) for those important pedestrian safety improvements. Later this year- a sidewalk will be built on Hillside Ave from the Greenburgh Town Hall to South Road. And, we hope that construction of a sidewalk on Juniper Hill will begin at the end of 2023.
Our goal: to make Greenburgh a safe place for pedestrians. Miles of new sidewalks have been built around town in recent years. And miles will continue to be built in the coming years.
PS: If you walk at night please wear a reflector. Free reflectors can be obtained at the Greenburgh Town hall and Library. We are distributing over 15,000 reflectors. Motorists have a difficult time seeing pedestrians walking on streets when wearing dark clothing.
