Press Release: Town Invites Residents to Meeting to Learn About TZ Bridge/I-287 Corridor Project

Town Invites Residents to Meeting to Learn About Tappan Zee Bridge/I-287 Corridor Project

For Immediate Release

Town Invites Residents to Meeting to Learn About Tappan Zee Bridge/I-287 Corridor Project

 

(New City, NY) – Town Supervisor Alex Gromack and the Town Board are hosting the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) at its Workshop meeting on February 1, 2011 at 7:30PM in Room 301 to give a complete overview of the Tappan Zee Bridge/I-287 Corridor Project to residents.

 

“Our residents need to know how the Tappan Zee Bridge/ I-287 Corridor Project is going to affect our Town,” said Supervisor Alex Gromack.  “The fabric of our community cannot be compromised for the sake of a new bridge.  This Town Board workshop will lay out for residents the state’s current plans, the effects the plans have on our neighborhoods, and what our neighbors can do to provide their own input in the process.”     

 

In early 2010, Supervisor Gromack and the Town Board created the Tappan Zee Bridge/I-287 Corridor Project Task Force to discuss the work being done by the NYSDOT and to ensure that Clarkstown is not adversely affected by the project. 

 

The NYSDOT plans to not only build a new bridge, but also construct two multimodal stations in Clarkstown to accommodate the NYSDOT and the NYS Thruway Authority’s Commuter Rail Transit and Bus Rapid Transit projects.  Additionally, preliminary plans show changes in exit ramp configurations in the Town, including changes to Exit 11 near Mountainview Avenue and Exit 13 in Nanuet.

 

"It is our principal responsibility as elected officials in the Town of Clarkstown to protect the interest of our neighborhoods and the future of our community,” said Supervisor Gromack.  "We are hosting this meeting to give all residents the chance to hear about the project plans and give their input on how it will affect our community."
