Governor: “Our job is not to have people adjust to government, but to have government adjust to the people.”
That was the reasoning behind Governor Andrew Cuomo’s 2012 Drivers First initiative, “a new approach by the State Department of Transportation to prioritize the convenience of motorists and ensure that disruptions are as minimal as possible to drivers at highway and bridge projects across the state.”
Hmm. Regarding the project, maybe the government only adjust sometimes.
I digress. I looked it up because Friday’s press release said there would be no lane closures this weekend in accordance with that 2012 initiative. So no pile driving or river doings this last weekend before school starts.
Few lane closures on I-87/I-287 next week as well:
• Tuesday and Wednesday, September 2 and 3 — the southbound right lane near Exit 10, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
• Thursday, September 4 —the southbound right and middle lanes across the Tappan Zee Bridge, from 8 p.m. to 5 p.m.
On the water this weekend? Remember . . .
Recreational boaters have six new lighted channel markers guiding them to and from the Piermont shore, per a recent press release. Off-limits is the U.S. Coast Guard’s Safety Zone; heed the expanded Regulated Navigation Area (RNA). Safe boating, everyone.
I’d like to know what you think.
