After almost 20 years of pushing for a greener, safer, and more sustainable community, The Point CDC (and the rest of the community) are celebrating the allocation of $97 million in New York State’s recently approved budget to begin converting the ugly Sheridan Expressway into a beautiful, green boulevard along The Bronx River.

After nearly two decades of advocacy and planning to transform the Sheridan Expressway, South Bronx residents and businesses have a plan they agree on. The next step: Governor Cuomo’s State DOT must launch an environmental review to begin implementing the plan. The State Senate included $3 million for the review in its budget proposal [PDF]. With a unanimous 10-0 vote this afternoon, the City Council transportation committee urged the state to follow through and conduct the study. The full City Council is expected to endorse the request tomorrow.
