Chappaqua gets new sidewalks, pedestrian plazas as part of $16M renovationPosted: Updated:
Residents in downtown Chappaqua are no longer dealing with a giant construction site.
It took 26 months and cost $16 million, but the village now has new sidewalks, pedestrian plazas and more.
Local shops toughed it out for more than two years, and say they are finally ready to get back to normal.
Residents also say they patiently waited to cross the street without any obstacles.
"As you can see we have some nice new pedestrian plazas, and we'll have some nice new tables and chairs out there and umbrellas in the spring. This is a nice place for the community to come a congregate,” says New Castle Town Supervisor Robert Greenstein.
There is also a new traffic light that has yet to be unwrapped due to a DOT provision.
