Sheridan Expressway Mini-Meet?
« on: April 07, 2016, 09:05:08 AM »

So, now that they're seriously talking about demolishing the Sheridan Expressway (I-895), is anyone up for a meet to clinch it while it's still there?  Of course, the Sheridan itself will take all of five minutes, so here are some ideas for other stuff in the area that we could tack on as well:

* City Island Bridge reconstruction
* Kosciuszko Bridge reconstruction
* Unofficially resurrected NY 25C
* Sunrise Highway (NY 27)/Merrick Road (Nassau CR 27) grade separation
* Taconic Parkway before it gets exit numbers
* Playland Parkway
* Central Westchester Parkway (Westchester CR 150)
* Croton Expressway (US 9) and Bear Mountain Bridge (US 6/US 202)

If you're interested, let me know which of the above would do most interesting to tack on or if you have any other ideas in the general area.

Keep in mind the money's not going to kick in for a few years, so no rush.  In my experience, NYSDOT's program can have drastic changes even a year out.

Taconic Parkway before it gets exit numbers

An argument could be made that it'd be more interesting to wait until AFTER it gets exit numbers..

We already have the Tuxedo meet and - hopefully - the Tappan Zee meet this year in NY. This might want to wait until next year. There will be a time when Kosciuszko Bridge traffic is using the old approaches but the new bridge as construction continues - somewhere either just before or just after that changeover seems prime.

Oh, there's still a separate TZB meet planned?  When is that one happening?
