Safe Streets

Streets that are safe for walking and biking discourage vehicle traffic. 

The village is always looking for opportunities to add sidewalks and improve the safety of our streets. It has completed the following street improvement projects:


Irvington is currently working to improve the sidewalks along South Astor Street near the Irvington train station. 

Idling Laws

Westchester County has enacted an Anti-Idling Law to prohibit the idling of vehicles for more than three consecutive minutes.

Idling for more than 10 seconds uses more fuel and produces more emissions that contribute to smog and climate change than stopping and restarting your engine does. Personal vehicles generate around 30 million tons of CO2 every year just by idling

Route 9

Five villages are collaborating to create regional economic opportunity by making Route 9 a more functional, safe complete street that is accessible to all. See the Route9 Active Transportation website for more details. The project is currently awaiting preliminary engineering and full traffic study.
