School district pressing officials for Route 145 traffic signal

Jun 02, 2016 6:00 am

Katie Kocijanski is reporting in The Daily Mail Cairo-Durham Superintendent Anthony Taibi [TIE-ee-bee] addressed the Greene County Legislature Public Safety Committee, Wed., Jun. 1, urging that changes be made on Route 145, at the entrance to the Cairo-Durham Middle and High School campus. Several serious accidents have occurred at the site in the past few years and raised community concerns about safety, for students in particular. Taibi told lawmakers, “This intersection is a ticking time bomb. We need to come up with a permanent solution.” Following a fatal accident at the intersection in 2011, the state Department of Transportation reduced the speed limit and removed a passing zone, but school officials say more is needed. They are asking that a traffic light be installed, and a passing lane be created. County legislators Harry Lennon and William Lawrence of Cairo, and Aidan O’Connor Jr. of Durham, all support the changes. Town, county and school district officials intend to write letters to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, state Sen. George Amedore and Assembly member Pete Lopez, proposing the changes. Taibi said the letter-writing campaign on the issue conducted by the district reached 4,000 people on social media. Read the full story in The Daily Mail.
