GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Westchester County won’t object if the Town of Greenburgh places webcams on the Ashford Ave Bridge and on surrounding streets, said Town Supervisor Paul Feiner.
"I suggest that webcams be placed around the bridge area in Ardsley and Dobbs Ferry so we could monitor traffic conditions 24-hours-a-day," Feiner said. "I spoke with the police chief, and we will proceed with implementation of this initiative."
Feiner said the installation of webcams will help first responders respond to emergencies faster as they will be able to monitor traffic before responding.
"And it’s important for bridge contractors to know that they are being watched and that we expect them to work as quickly as possible to repair the bridge," he said. "My prediction: If contractors know that we’re watching them that the construction will be completed much quicker."
The supervisor said he will notify residents when the webcams have been installed.
