One week ago today, we moved the Village contracted Bruel and Kjaer noise monitor closer to Piermont Avenue and the TZB trestle. It is currently affixed to the riverfront railing near the entrance to the Salisbury Point lower parking lot. At one point on Thursday, the monitor recorded noise at 94 decibels and this morning the monitor reached decibels of 101.8. Brian Conybeare and his team were very responsive to our calls, but again their monitors did not show the same decibel levels. They continue to look for additional mitigation.
Also regarding construction sounds, I have heard from some of our Salisbury residents that the new windows installed are very effective in reducing the noise level.
Beware of persons claiming to represent the NYS Thruway/TZ Constructors who state that you are eligible for the noise reducing windows. Eligible homeowners have already been notified. Do not sign contracts or make payment to any person who solicits door to door for this window upgrade.
Regarding the Community Meeting, Brian Conybeare has stated that in the next few days, he will be able to give us an exact date for the Shared Use Path presentation. He is looking at the latter part of September or the first week in October.
Just a reminder, this Sunday, September 7th is the South Nyack 10 Mile Run. Join us as a participant or come as an observer and cheer for the runners. The event, starting at 8:15 a.m., begins and ends at the Franklin Street Park.
Have a wonderful weekend.
