Oak Tree Road Sidewalk Addition

Over the years, the Town of Orangetown has made a commitment to improve existing sidewalks and to install new ones on Oak Tree Road in Palisades. The remaining section still in need of completing is identified by the Highway Department as between RT 340 and the J.B. Clarke Rail Trail.

In the fall of 2017, Assembly member Ellen Jaffee supported a grant of $125,000 through the State and Municipal Facilities program for this work. The sidewalk will open up visibility at the south/west corner of RT 340/ Oak Tree Road intersection. Construction date is still to be announced. We thank Town Supervisors Stewart and Day, Jim Dean of the Highway Department and Assembly member Jaffee for their efforts to make this installation possible.
