• Legislator Cunzio Announces Funding for Redesign at Dangerous Intersection

    Legislator Margaret Cunzio (C) Mount Pleasant, announced that the Board of Legislators (BOL) has approved a Bond Act in the amount of $325,000 to redesign a section of Commerce Street, specifically the intersection of Commerce and Elwood Street which has been the site of numerous traffic accidents including a pedestrian fatality in February 2013.
    This intersection has been of concern to local officials for many years. In 1999, the Mount Pleasant Police Chief wrote to the County Department of Public Works asking that a safety study be conducted at that intersection. At that time there were 13 crashes in one year and a pedestrian was hit. Following the 2013 pedestrian fatality the town of Mount Pleasant sent their own re-design plans to Westchester County with a request that the plans be considered as part of the County’s capital improvement plans for Commerce Street.
