Chappaqua drivers welcome new traffic light at confusing intersectionPosted: Updated:
Chappaqua drivers will soon have a new traffic light at a confusing intersection that has many constantly asking who has the right of way.
The intersection between King Street and Greeley Avenue will soon have a new traffic light. It’s all part of the town of New Castle's $11.6 million improvement project aimed to, in part, make Chappaqua’s downtown more walkable.
Toni Magnotta owns Chappaqua Cleaners and Tailors, a family business that has been around for 85 years.
She says the area has been a problem ever since the addition of an all-way stop sign back in July.
"It’s been a little difficult. They did put a four-way stop sign but some people aren't used to it so they just go through the sign,” she says.
Magnotta says the traffic light is a welcome change.
"I think it's a good thing, especially for the kids who go to town from the middle school,” she says.
The traffic light is expected to be up and running by mid-October.
