The "Route 9 Active Transportation Conceptual Design Plan" is bringing together residents, merchants and government officials with transportation professionals to figure out how to:
a) provide a protected bike lane along Route 9 from the north end of Sleepy Hollow through the south end of Hastings-on-Hudson. This will make it safe and fun to get to shops, schools, friends and the bike path on the new Tappan Zee Bridge.
b) improve sidewalks, crosswalks and intersections in this corridor to make things safer and more inviting for people walking.
c) make bus stops more accessible and attractive.
The project is a collaboration of residents and officials in the Villages of Sleepy Hollow, Tarrytown, Irvington, Dobbs Ferry and Hastings-on-Hudson. It's being funded by the Community Benefits Program of the New New York Bridge. We thank Todd Westhuis, the Director of Region 8 of the State's Department of Transportation, for his support and participation.

Many thanks to everyone who came to our public input meetings that opened the study process! 70 people participated in the Hastings-on-Hudson meeting (6/15/17) and another 70 people pitched in at the Tarrytown meeting (6/17/17).
Walking, biking, getting around and enjoying being there.
