Central Avenue in Greenburgh is getting a new, special traffic light near the Sacred Heart Church.
Over 23,000 vehicles travel up the four lane road.
It's also been the site of many crashes, including when an 11- and 14-year-old were hit trying to cross the busy street in 2019.
Since then, local leaders and the community filed a petition for the light.
