blinking light at ft hill road and ardsley road

The town is installing a blinking light at the four directional intersection on Fort Hill Road and Ardsley Road. The light is being installed at the recommendation of the Greenburgh Police Department Traffic Unit with the assistance of the Department of Public Works. The goal: the blinking light will be an added control devise to warn motorists of this stop sign. This will not change the right of way and all vehicles in each direction will still need to make a full stop. We have considered placing a traffic light at this location but opted for the blinking light. A traditional traffic light would probably cause traffic back ups.

This intersection has experienced the most accidents in the town. Between July, 2009 and October 2012 there have been 63 accidents a the intersection. The light has been installed and should be operational within the next few weeks.
