Thank god NYS cancelled all plans to widen highway 17.

Highway widening does NOT work; it only generates more traffic, pollution, and congestion. Such a widening is a total waste of money and resources.

Public transportation is the answer. It is time to study bringing passenger trains back to Orange and Sullivan County.
