State DOT Agrees to Remove Hudson River Greenway Stop Signs By November
By the time you read this, either the illegal stop signs on the Hudson River Greenway will be gone or T.A. will be preparing to return to court to demand that the State DOT immediately remove the signs. This fall, after much negotiation between T.A.'s legal counsel and the State Attorney General's Office (on behalf of the State DOT), T.A. agreed to give the State DOT and its contractor until November to complete their promised installation of new bicycle traffic signals and remove the illegal stop signs that dot the Hudson River Greenway. Until that time, the suit is in adjournment. T.A. plans to bring the suit back to court if the stop signs are not removed by November. The real solution to ending conflict between turning motorists and greenway users is to redesign the intersections on the path to slow the motorists using raised intersection at each driveway.
