There is now an additional traffic lane on Weyman Avenue in New Rochelle.
The new lane, from Main Street to Nardozzi Place, was built to accommodate additional traffic because of the elimination of the curved connector roadway that split two lots where a diner is being built.
DeRaffele Manufacturing purchased the two lots between Main Street and Nardozzi Place off Weyman Avenue for $600,000 from the City of New Rochelle. The City Council abandoned the curved roadway connecting Main Street and Nardozzi Place and sold it to DeRaffele.
The two now-separated lots will be combined in order to create enough contiguous land for the diner and parking.
The developer is paying for all improvements which include moving stormwater drains.
Arrows painted on the roadway indicate whether the lane one is traveling into off of Main Street will proceed down Weyman Avenue or turn onto Nardozzi Place.
