Metro North Train Stop Coming To Woodbury Commons
Governor Cuomo made the most of his stop to Marist College Thursday by making a number of announcements. That includes the long-discussed but never built Metro-North train stop at Woodbury Common Outlets.
The Times Herald Record reports while the issue received just a brief mention in the speech, a press release from the Governor's office in early January discussed a review of the project as a public-private partnership. A train stop at the site was originally planned in the early 2000s, but the project never materialized.
The new project is expected to break ground this spring and is part of the DOT's overall $150 million plan to revamp Route 17s Exit 131 and will also convert the Harriman toll plaza to fully electronic tolling. Few specifics were available from the Governor's office and Metro North.
The Outlets have nearly 6,000 parking spaces, will mass transportation options help free up enough room for shoppers?
