Four Westchester County municipalities have received an intermunicipal grant of $250,000 from the New York State Thruway Authority which they’ll use to develop a plan for improving pedestrian and cycling safety along a stretch of Route 119.
The town of Greenburgh, villages of Elmsford and Tarrytown and the city of White Plains will develop a Route 119 Complete Street Design Plan to update the corridor, Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner announced.
The grant is funded by a Community Benefits Program Agreement through the New NY Bridge Project.
Feiner said the design will “support high-quality access to” the bridge while providing improved safety and better access for businesses and residents on Route 119.
The municipalities will build a consulting team will use existing studies and public meetings to create a plan that can be submitted for final engineering before July 2018, according to the town.
