There have been traffic delays at the 4 corners in recent weeks due to sidewalk, traffic light work by NYS
TOWN BOARD APPROVES LAW CONCERNING NEW CONDO AND COOP DEVELOPMENTS
UPDATE ON FOUR CORNERS IN HARTSDALE
Yesterday, the Greenburgh Town Board held a special meeting to vote on a new law that will tax NEWLY CONSTRUCTED condo's and coops at residential rates - not commercial rates. Last year the Governor signed a law approved by the NYS Legislature that authorized the Town of Greenburgh to adopt this legislation. The new law does not impact existing condo's and coops. Developers who wish to build affordable condos and coops could still apply to the town for tax abatements. Councilmembers Ken Jones, Francis Sheehan and Gina Jackson voted for the legislation. Councilwoman Ellen Hendrickx and I recused ourselves because a recent Board of Ethics opinion recommended that condominium owners within Greenburgh recuse themselves, even though no conflict of interest was found.
RESOLUTION OF THE TOWN BOARD OF THE TOWN OF GREENBURGH AMENDING CHAPTER 440 OF THE CODE OF THE TOWN OF GREENBURGH BY CREATING A NEW ARTICLE XVII ENTITLED, “TAX ASSESSMENT OF CONDOMINIUMS AND COOPERATIVES.”
Many people have been calling me expressing concern about the recent traffic problems at the intersection of West & East Hartsdale Ave and Central Ave. Some motorists have been stuck in traffic for as long as a half hour while NYS is working to improve curbing and the light. I received the following update from the NYS DOT. PAUL FEINER
Good morning Supervisor Feiner,
I’m the Area Construction Supervisor for NYSDOT on the subject project at the intersection of Rt 100 and Rt 100A (East/West Hartsdale Rd). I’m reaching out to let you know the anticipated remaining schedule of work at this location.
This week we expect DOT’s prime contractor (JR Cruz) to complete their concrete sidewalk work in the Northeast corner (in front of “Hartsdale Corners”). Cruz’s electrical subcontractor (Verde Electric) has been following them and doing the underground electrical work in each quadrant of the intersection, which we anticipate to be completed by end of next week. In the meantime, ConEd is to install a new utility pole in the NE corner of the intersection and then relocating their overhead wires from the existing pole onto the new pole, followed by the other utilities. Our best guess for all of the utility relocations being completed is by the end of June.
After all the utilities are relocated onto the new pole, the old pole will be removed and Verde Electric will return to excavate the foundation for the new traffic signal pole which is immediately adjacent to where ConEd’s existing pole is currently located. Verde’s work will be followed by JR Cruz completing the curb and sidewalk work in the NE corner, and finally Verde will install the signal poles, overhead span wire, and hang the new signal heads over the road. Once the utilities are done, JR Cruz and Verde’s work at this intersection will only take a couple of weeks to complete (hopefully by mid-July), and then the new signal will be scheduled for activation hopefully by end of July. The wild card here is the utility work, we’ll try to keep them on track so DOT’s contractors can finish their work and get the new signal turned on.
We realize traffic is very heavy at this intersection even under normal circumstances. JR Cruz made arrangements with Town of Greenburgh police to help with traffic control and close lanes when needed. Cruz and Verde are doing their best to finish the work as quickly as possible so as to minimize any traffic impacts.
I hope this update is helpful. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if there are any questions.
Jason E. Hilton, P.E.
