Nyack Residents Voice Opposition to TZ Bridge Bike Path

B9316301651Z.1_20150224221021_000_GG5A297HL.1-0In a unified front against the implementation of a bike path beside the bridge, residents met last night inside the Living Christ Church in Nyack for the Nyack Village Board. They rallied against the plan for the $10 million path set to end in a residential neighborhood. More than 20 people stood at the podium to state their case and propose staging public opposition such as protests and bus trips to Albany, all to make lawmakers and the Thruway Authority aware of the unwelcome changes. At the heart of the debate is the added traffic congestion and new construction that are inevitable consequences due to this new tourist attraction. Thruway Authority Officials estimate up to 473 visitors every hour during peak times which will require 151 news parking spaces in both counties. More meetings by the Thruway Authority are expected in March to further gauge feedback on the project before any decisions are made.
