SPECIAL REPORT – RAILROAD CROSSINGS

I am pleased to report that working closely with our elected representatives and with the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA), the NYS Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Federal Railroad Administration (among other agencies), we have secured funds for DOT to install CCTV cameras to record grade crossing movements at the Jay Street and Green Lane grade crossings.  This is an important step to further investigate specific incidents and analyze crossing/traffic operations for targeted modifications to improve safety. Metro‐North Railroad as a subsidiary of the MTA also will be working to implement this project.
We appreciate the invaluable contribution which the community has been making in advocating to our elected representatives the need for improved safety at these dangerous grade crossings.  Progress would not have been made without it.
