HUDSON — A range of concerns about a proposed haul road were voiced Tuesday night, but most speakers had the same goal — convince the Greenport Planning Board to take a hard look at potential impacts of the project.
Greenport-based gravel company A. Colarusso & Son, Inc. is looking to improve a 2.6-mile road running from the sand and gravel mine on Newman Road to the company-owned commercial dock at Hudson’s waterfront. If completed, the haul road, Colarusso said, would reroute Colarusso trucks from the state truck route, which runs through Greenport and Hudson.
“It will help remove some trucks from Greenport and Hudson streets, thus making it safer and saving infrastructure,” according to a support letter the company asked people to sign at Tuesday’s meeting.
The Greenport Planning Board is lead agency on reviewing the proposal.
