The impact of a bike/walking path is the impetus, the Nyack Free Press reports.

Changes to the sprawling Interchange 10 site (which destroyed South Nyack's downtown when the Tappan Zee Bridge was built) did not make it into the final plans for the new bridge. 

Now the village is worried about the impacts of the new bridge's bike-and-pedestrian path, which would terminate on the west side of the Hudson River across the street from Village Hall. 

"Village officials and residents say that site will overwhelm South Nyack's quiet, residential streets with visitors to the path and their cars," Bill Demarest wrote on nyackfreepress.com. "South Nyack is urging the state use the Exit 10 interchange site nearby as the landing for the bicycle/walking path and to include parking and related facilities there."

Officials will use $250,000 from the state for an engineering study that looks at the planned path and possibilities in a re-built Interchange 10. A South Nyack task force has already met with three engineering firms that have shown interest, the Nyack Free Press reported.
