Tuxedo Park. Road safety update

30 Jun 2020 | 10:44

    Tuxedo Park Chief Dave Conklin issued the following update this week on traffic issues in the village:

    In an ongoing effort to improve road safety for vehicles and pedestrians, Mayor David C. McFadden has instructed the Police Department to temporarily halt all package delivery trucks/vans entering the Park after 5 p.m. as well as asking them to exit the Park no later than 6 p.m.

    If this presents a problem for scheduled delivery, contact the Mayor or the Police Department so that we can make an exception for you.

    The Mayor also informed me the Tuxedo Club non-resident members and Club employees would use East Lake Road for accessing the pool, tennis and main club area when arriving and departing through the south and main gates. East Lake Road is the preferred route because West Lake Road is more narrow and winding, making it more difficult to see pedestrians.

    The posted speed limit is 30 mph, but we strongly recommend driving at 25 mph. Be advised the Police Department is strictly enforcing the current speed limit with little or no warning tickets given. We also have advised the landscapers and our garbage company not to disobey the speed limit. Let’s keep it safe for all.
