#SleepyHollowNY has a recurring problem w/ ignoring requirements for #ADA compliant detours during #sidewalk #construction.

Here are 8 people forced into traffic on Beekman Ave w/in 90 seconds on 1/23/19. ($ via US HUD CDBG.) 1/x

Gas main work at Tornello's Automotive blocks #sidewalk on US Route 9 in #SleepyHollowNY, 10/1/18. Busy road that's major walking route for kids #walking to @ufsdtarrytowns High School, Middle School, & Pre-K/K school. 3/x
May-July 2016 series of #WorkZone #sidewalk diversions on US Route 9 during the #SleepyHollowNY/#Tarrytown Streetscape project.

Numerous safety & #ADA violations. Here's 1 w/ @ufsdtarrytowns students forced to cross mid block. Filed multiple reports, Village & DOT did nothing.
Here's how the west end of Beekman Ave's #sidewalk looked in 7/6/18. It was like this for an extended time. There was no #ADA ramps, no safe bypass around the #WorkZone. 5/x
Beekman Ave Bridge over the train tracks during this construction phase has the #SleepyHollowNY #sidewalk @ ~2.5' wide, directly next to moving vehicles w/o any buffer. Vehicle lanes are narrow, pushing people to drive very close to that sidewalk. Poorly lit at night. Very 😱 6/x
Had a moment to photograph the construction zone on #SleepyHollowNY's Beekman Ave Bridge. Yep, it's 2' 9" wide.

Hey, @KostelecPlan: what's the minimum legal width for a construction zone sidewalk? 4 feet? 7/x
Here's the sole light source for the whole Beekman Ave Bridge construction area. A small, home size, screw in flood light. #SleepyHollowNY. 8/x
More Beekman Ave street light replacement construction blocked the sidewalk on 3/27/19.

Few days later, crew blocked sidewalk, forcing kids walking to @ufsdtarrytowns HS/MS into traffic. Asked them to fix. "We have a job to do." So we had police step in (TY!). #SleepyHollowNY
