Stop Sign Possible for Chappaqua's King-Greeley Intersection

CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. – A proposal to add a stop sign to the King Street - Greeley Avenue intersection is pending in front of the New York State Department of Transportation, according the New Castle Town Board.

Both merchants and town officials have raised concerns over the lack of a stop sign on King Street, saying it causes confusion among drivers and makes it difficult for pedestrians to cross the street.

“People just don’t what that is," Town Administrator Penny Paderewski said of the intersection. “They come down the hill, some people stop, some people just go.”

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 set-up can cause 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.

"That would make downtown a lot better because nobody knows what to do at that intersection," said Council member Robin Stout. "I think a stop sign would be great to slow traffic and enhance the pedestrian ‘walkability’ of downtown."

Paderewski said a response from the department of transportation may take a while. Stout also recommended the town look into adding crosswalks in front of King Street Restaurant and Bar to make the downtown area more pedestrian-friendly.
