New Rochelle could be so much more accessible and easier to get to if the cross county parkway extended to the 95. This would ease up local traffic. I know some houses may have to go, but the area really needs an infrastructure revamp.

1. I highly doubt they would be able to do something like that. This is something up to transportation agencies.
2. This would not help a single thing. All i see this accomplishing is people on the Hutch or Cross County exiting near I-95 instead of the northern end. This would just hurt the northern end and only save about 5 minutes
I don’t understand how this idea got 81 likes. It would be awful for New Rochelle. Maybe the proposal would be good for the commutes of people living elsewhere in Westchester, and in Connecticut, but I don’t think we should cut up our city to help shorten other people’s commutes.
This was the original plan for the Cross-County Parkway in the mid 1950’s (is appears on old maps.) It was vetoed than, as too expensive. Guess what?
Terrible idea! Not only do we not need the exhaust and pollutants in the air that this would generate, it would also devastate residential communities.
We need to figure out a way to faciliate more pedestrian traffic over downtown’s existing gashes, created by I-95 and the train tracks. Creating a whole new gash in NR by adding more highway would not only be a waste of resources, but would actually make things *worse* for residents.
Terrible idea! May other infrastructure needs top this one. “some houses may have to go”?!?! how about your house?!
I am not sure if more highways through New Rochelle is the answer. It is more likely it will just be used by people trying to avoid traffic rather than just to get to New Rochelle. There is a connector in CT near Milford between 95 and the Merrit. I often take it, but NEVER stop in Milford.
This is a good idea. it could be easily accomplished by expanding the I-95 Exit 14 to be a full interchange with the Hutch, which connects with the Cross County Parkway just North of Exit 14.
