This week in the villages: Ready for a change of seasons? Last week was the end of election season; now it’s time to display some holiday spirit. Clarkstown is spreading some holiday cheer by keeping property taxes flat. There’s a bicycle plan bake off this week among transportation design firms vying to develop a multi-village Bike/Walk Master Plan. And Mayor Jen White holds her last “Downtown” meeting as mayor on Tues at 9a in Village Hall (it’s open to the public).

South Nyack wants your input on parking concerns and solutions and the Town of Orangetown finalized the sale of 60 acres of town-owned land for construction of a data center.
This week in the villages: Getting around the Mario Cuomo Bridge won’t get any easier this week. It’s Week 2 of the River Road closure required to demolish the Rockland Tappan Zee Bridge landing.

This Week In The Villages: Goodbye, Malcolm. Hello Mario. Last Friday the last four lanes of traffic shifted from the 1955 cantilever Tappan Zee Bridge to the 2017 cable-stay Mario M. Cuomo crossing. On Tues 10/10, construction crews will begin demolition of the I-287 overpass that passes over Piermont Ave/River Road. If you drive a car you will have to detour via 9W until mid-November. If you ride a bicycle, you can still get through…but you will have to wait as much as an hour on weekdays. Hint: if you ride, this is a good time to walk… your bicycle on the Esposito Rail Trail. It’s safer, prettier and faster than waiting. It’s too dangerous to TAKE the car detour on 9W: a Pomona NY recreational cyclist was struck and killed along this route five years ago.
To better share the road, share the workload: The Nyack villages are looking for volunteers to provide input to a master plan for bicycling and walking.
