Did you see the awesome Halloween doings in the villages — Tarrytown, Sleepy Hollow and Nyack — last weekend? If you did, then you caught some of the unique bridge designs, like the one fashioned by David Titcomb. No worries if you missed them; you can see the Bridge Art Show in the Outreach Centers — 142 Main St., Nyack, and at 303 S. Broadway, Tarrytown — through Friday. Hours are Monday to Friday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. While there, watch the video and pose by the pilings.

While the weekend was fun, the new week brings traffic alerts. Coming up: two- and three-lane closures on I-87/I-287 northbound for paving near Exit 9 and the toll plaza. They’re detailed in the latest press release, as are the new electronic highway signs and boater safety. Since August, six lighted channel markers have guided them to and from the Piermont shore. Off-limits is the U.S. Coast Guard’s Safety Zone; know the expanded Regulated Navigation Area (RNA).

Who besides me has been checking the river for super crane sightings? The lane shifts and slower speeds gave me time to see what’s doing in the water (as far as I could see since I’m short).

More vessels so be aware. Safe boating, everyone.

Though it’s nearly Halloween, folks are on the water; heed restrictions. Check out the Coast Guard’s weekly Local Notice to Mariners, excerpted and in its entirety, listed under Boater Safety Information on the project’s website. A LNM primer is here.

I’d like to know what you think.
