RAMAPO, NY – The New York State Department of Transportation are continuing safety upgrades to Route 59. The road has had many pedestrians struck by motor vehicles. Following the tragic death of a baby in 2018, the NYS DOT started making much needed safety upgrades – they have repaired and built new sidewalks, added extra signage, and multiple new crosswalks. There is currently a temporary light that has been installed. (unconfirmed if the light will be permeant when construction is completed).

It will soon be possible to walk from the Nanuet commuter lot through Spring Valley to College Road in Airmont/Monsey, all on a sidewalk.

Legislator Wieder and Alex Rapaport, executive director of New York City-based Masbia, a soup kitchen and food care package program, collected items, transported the care packages and distributed them to troops at about 25 different posts that had been set up at street corner barricades.
