PELHAM, N.Y. Pelham resident Susan Mutti has concerns about a road near the Pelham train station where traffic flows into a single lane on a two-way street. Mutti e-mailed her concerns about Corlies Avenue to The Daily Pelham.
"On Corlies driving from First (Street), the parking there has created a chute of only one lane," Mutti said in the e-mail. "You have to drive up the hill on Corlies and hope no one will speed down before you get to the top. Very dangerous."
Drivers can park on either side of the street. Mutti said that one side is for permit holders and the other only allows one hour parking, but the resident said that people often exceed that limit.
"You're basically in a single lane with cars on either side," Mutti said. "I'm surprised there hasn't been an accident there."
Mutti has been an active member of the Friends of the Highbrook Highline and has discussed the issue with the Village of Pelham Board of Trustees at meetings. She said she has not brought her concerns about Corlies Avenue before the board.
Pelham Manor recently faced a parking concern of its own. A resident informed that village's board of trustees about a parking issue at the intersection of Boston Post Road and Wynnewood Road. The board moved a no parking sign at the corner to increase visibility for drivers turning onto Boston Post Road.
Peter Bonington, secretary to the village administrator, said that he could not immediately recall other complaints about Corlies Avenue.
