The Village of Rhinebeck recently completed a sidewalk installation project on Knollwood Road that leads to the Chancellor Livingston School. The project included the installation of over 400 linear feet of new concrete sidewalk. Mayor Jim Reardon announced today “ the Village Board members are extremely pleased to have completed this project which provides for a safe pedestrian zone for the children traveling to and from the elementary school”. This area is a twisting, winding, heavily traveled section of roadway that had no sidewalk which necessitated the children walking on the shoulder of the roadway. Now they walk on an elevated sidewalk that has a buffer median between them and the vehicle traffic. Funding was provided for when the Knollwood Properties development went through review at the Planning Board level. Reardon stat es “ as a Board our primary concern is the health and safety of our community and by completing this sidewalk we have taken a big step to provide for public safety”.
