I'm familiar with the area, I believe Rockland County is just north of
NYC on the western side of the Hudson and heavily populated.
The towns mentioned want quiet zones (no horns) and partitioned CSX for
them. Before the zone can be established, all the crossings within the
zone have to be protected with gates.
According to your comments all the crossings already are gated. If
that's the case then, most of the money will go to realign the
approaches and upgrades. Please keep in mind that NY is unionized and
and any roadwork is twice as expensive. Considering the county's 20%
match, there will be plenty of eyes on this project.
West Point is only about 10 miles north of Rockland and is beautiful
in the Spring...might be time for a road trip, Fly into White Plains,
from there it's just a short drive across the Tappan Zee. While your
there, visit Ossining on the east bank which is home to Sing Sing
Prison. About 10 south of Sing Sing, is the Village of Sleepy Hollow.
Probably need to go back in the fall when the works done.
Make sure you have a good camera, nothing is more convincing than
before and after pictures!
