Crawford gets federal grant for Pine Bush pedestrian safety improvements

PINE BUSH – The Town of Crawford has been awarded $1.9 million for sidewalks and a crosswalk with signal in the hamlet of Pine Bush. The funds come from the Federal Highway Administration and are channeled through the state.

The grant will allow for the addition of a sidewalk in front of the Valley Supreme Plaza and will continue down Route 52 past the laundromat and to the traffic light. At that intersection, a crosswalk with a signal will be linked to the light that will cross Route 52 and lead to the new stretch of sidewalk that will complete the exiting sidewalk on Boniface Drive.

“The hamlet of Pine Bush continues to grow, and we are seeking ways to promote pedestrian traffic,” said Town Supervisor Charles Carnes. “This crucial addition allows our residents to safely walk from the housing developments on Boniface Drive to the downtown shops and restaurants safely.” Carnes said the town has been working to secure the grant for three years.

State Senator James Skoufis (D, Woodbury) said, “Next up: let’s get Route 52 repaved.”
