Traffic Safety Measures to be Implemented at Four-Way Intersection in Airmont
Village of Airmont officials met with the Rockland County Highway Department to discuss the implementation of traffic safety changes at the four-way intersection of Christmas Hill Road, New County Road, South Monsey Road, and Monsey Heights Road.
Mayor Nathan Bubel, Deputy Mayor Shimon Moses, and Confidential Assistant Yehuda Zorger were all on-site for the discussion.
The steadily expanding traffic at the intersection has brought an increase in accidents along with numerous complaints from residents regarding the increasingly dangerous Village intersection. The location presently has a two-way stop, with one stop sign on Christmas Hill Road and the other on South Monsey Heights Road.
Lacking the authorization to take care of the issue on their own, the Village of Airmont requested the county to make the two-way stop into a four-way stop.
After a traffic study of the location pointed to an increased possibility of accidents for both pedestrians and vehicles, the implementation of prominent four-way stop signs and improved striping is in the works.
