A bridge too far? Local officials of New Castle in Westchester are urging regional transport planners build a bridge over the Saw Mill River Parkway and the nearby Metro North tracks in order to ease congestion. The projected cost for the construction is estimated to be in the region of $30 million to $50 million. Citing benefits for the town, railroad, county and state,” Sabrina Charney Hull, the town’s planning director added, “If you look at police reports for how many accidents there are on that portion of the Saw Mill River Parkway, it’s quite high. Typically you don’t expect to be interrupted by a four-way intersection and a traffic light.” [LoHud]
