CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. - After several Chappaqua merchants raised concerns over the lack of a stop sign at the intersection of King Street and Greeley Avenue, town officials confirmed that they are looking into the issue.
We had that on our plans, the DOT (Department of Transportation) signed off on it, we just have to go through the permit process, said New Castle Deputy Supervisor Elise Kessler Mottel.
The three-way intersection currently has two stop signs on North and South Greeley Avenues, giving the right-of-way to residents driving down King Street. The current set-up causes issues for drivers waiting for the heavily-trafficked road to clear before continuing on Greeley Avenue or turning onto the one-way lower King Street.
I think we need a stop sign there because its impossible to make a left and go down King, said Chappaqua Village Market co-owner Vinny Milazzo.
New Castle Town Planner David Brito said that since it is a state-owned road, the town is waiting on approval before putting in the sign.
