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:
Safe Routes to School (approx. 2008): Sidewalks on Station Rd / Willow St / Oak St / Dows Lane School campus / MS/HS campus
Station Road and thru Tunnel
Main Street ADA accessibility / sidewalk bump outs / enhanced visibility crosswalks
Veterans Memorial Plaza – enhanced visibility crosswalks
Heritage Hill Rd – enhanced visibility crosswalks
Hudson Road West from the Ardsley on Hudson train station to Mercy College
South Broadway sidewalk near Columbia University property
Harriman Road sidewalks (due to Ida damage)
Irvington is currently working to improve the sidewalks along South Astor Street near the Irvington train station.
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 https://afdc.energy.gov/files/u/publication/idling_personal_vehicles.pdf
