  • Dear New York State and Rockland County Leaders:

    I urge your strong support for the proposals of Improve59 to relieve vehicular and pedestrian congestion on state highway Route 59 in the Spring Valley/Monsey corridor in Rockland County. This innovative plan will protect presently imperiled pedestrians, widen the road to accommodate an additional lane of traffic in each direction and utilize a current-state owned but closed bypass road to improve circulation, among other measures.

    It is imperative to include Improve59’s bold infrastructure modernization proposals for state highway Route 59 as a priority in Plan 2045, New York Metropolitan Transportation Council’s (NYMTC) next Regional Transportation Plan. Improve59 directly aligns with key goals of Plan 2045 to achieve shared outcomes in a critical area in need of improvement.

    Ramapo is one of New York State’s fastest growing towns and the state investment in its infrastructure falls way behind its population growth. That’s why local business leaders, Laborers Local 754 and concerned public officials are joining Improve59.

    In addition to widening Route 59, this bold plan creates new walking and biking trails from the state bypass road to the Monsey Glen Park, installs wide pedestrian berths and landscaping to prevent the current nightmare of mothers darting across the roadway with their children and adds a turning lane from state highway Route 306.

    Pursuant to the Department of Transportation, in order to implement Improve59’s comprehensive safety proposals, the government must conduct a corridor study, which I urge you to support. Most importantly, Improve59 can happen with cooperation from the private sector. The primary commercial landowner in the corridor is offering a gratuitous dedication of 1300 linear feet for widening.

    Please support this urgent initiative to improve Route 59 for drivers and pedestrians.
