Many More Examples of Roads in Disrepair in Greenburgh

Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner

GREENBURGH, NY —February 7, 2019 — I plan to speak at the Senate sponsored hearing on the New York State Proposed Fiscal Budget on Friday at 3 PM at the Greenburgh Public Library. I will highlight the fact that New York State  owned roads  in Greenburgh are not maintained; they are in horrible condition. Greenburgh is not alone. Other municipalities in Westchester County are complaining that New York State is not providing adequate funding for road repaving. Last time a New York State owned road in Greenburgh was repaved was about 4 years ago. New York State has also cut back on staffing and resources for the regional NYS Department of Transportation offices.

The photo above and below were taken on Dobbs Ferry Road on February 7th. I have since reported the pothole. In the past New York State has sent crews out to repair potholes, but the potholes re-emerge a short time later because the roads are not properly repaired.

It must be emphasized that New York State is neglecting to maintain the roads they own. New York State must appropriate adequate funds to rebuild, mill, and repave roads that are evidently disintegrating. While New York State is doing a good job addressing High profile infrastructure projects such as LaGuardia and Kennedy Airports, and the Mario Cuomo Bridge, they are neglecting the many roads they own that demand repavement. And that is a shame.
