PALISADES The hamlet celebrated the completion of the Oak Tree Road sidewalk with a ribbon cutting ceremony Sunday.
Oak Tree Road is a winding road, and about a 550-foot stretch of the local road just west of Route 9W did not have sidewalks.
Since 2008, a group of local residents had petitioned the town of Orangetown to build a sidewalk there so that pedestrians can safely walk on it instead of walking on the paved street against traffic.
A $150,000 grant procured by state Sen. David Carlucci helped the project to move forward.
The ribbon cutting took place in front of the Palisades Community Center at 675 Oak Tree Road in Palisades.
