New York State Has Started to Listen to Our Complaints Regarding NYS Roads in Greenburgh Having Not Been Maintained
GREENBURGH, NY — March 9, 2019 — I am very excited. Last year 36 Greenburgh student interns spent the entire summer lobbying New York State to repave Saw Mill River Road. They met with representatives of the NYS Department of Transportation. Met with our State Senator, Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins and Assemblyman Tom Abinanti. They organized online petitions, wrote letters, called officials, and did so much more. Students can make a difference! It’s great to feel that we’re being listened to!
Just got the following good news—NYS will repave Saw Mill Road!!!!
So necessary. But, more has to be done. Last week I received a letter from the NYS DOT (Department of Transportation) indicating that Dobbs Ferry Road will be repaved, though they did not say when. Also, Hillside is scheduled to be repaved this year.
There are other NYS roads that need to be repaved –located in Greenburgh. I am planning to meet with the Westchester delegation to the NYS Legislature on Saturday, March 9, 2019, at Greenburgh Town Hall to continue the lobbying effort.
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo issued the following notice Thursday regarding repaving allocations that are designated under the PAVE NY program :
- Approximately $19.8 million in projects to renew 91 lane miles of the following roads in Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Orange, Dutchess, Ulster and Sullivan counties:
- 2.4 million to resurface two segments of Route 9A (Saw Mill River Road). The first segment is from five hundred feet north of the Hastings on Hudson Village Line to Ashford Avenue, and the second segment is from Heatherdell Road to Route 100B. Both locations are in Westchester County.
