New Signalization Slated for Downtown, Pelham Road and Webster Avenue

Motorists in New Rochelle’s downtown, along the Pelham Road corridor and on Webster Avenue can look forward to significant traffic improvements. The City has applied for federal and state funds to install new coordinated traffic signals that will enhance both efficiency and safety.

We anticipate replacing thirty-five signals on Main and Huguenot Streets, nine signals on Pelham Road, and nine signals on Webster Avenue. The total price tag for all three projects is approximately $8.8 million, but 95% of these costs are likely to be covered by federal and state assistance — a great deal for local taxpayers. We are proceeding now with the design phase of this effort, and will move forward to construction if and when these transportation grants are secured.
