A new bike path has been proposed to offer bikers the chance to avoid riding along the dangerous Route 303.
The announcement comes after a car on the dangerous route 303 killed a cyclist. There was another recent accident that left a cyclist injured.
Senator David Carlucci was able to secure $100,000 in state funding for the path. The path will connect both ends of Greenbush Road and run through state park land keeping cyclists off main roads. One of the more popular bike routes in Rockland runs from Nyack over Clausland Mountain which leads to riders crossing over the 400 foot wide route 303.
This new bike path as well as the multipurpose path that will be part of the new Tappan Zee Bridge is expected to encourage more biking throughout Rockland. Construction on the path will begin once survey work on the path route is complete.
