The Project

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.

Give Us Feedback

We're seeking your input via our second (and final) public survey.

This new survey allows you to provide the team with vital opinions about the design features being considered at specific locations. It will directly feed into the final conceptual plan for the corridor.

Whether or not you took the prior survey in June, your participation now is very important in guiding this process!

The survey will close on December 5, so don't wait. Take the survey today!

Successful Meetings

Many thanks to everyone who came to our public meetings.
