I don't believe there is a relationship to income and a commercial corridor.
This avenue is a gateway to parkways, highways and shopping centers. I believe people of all incomes and professions are inconvenienced by this problem. I believe the funds had been allocated for this project and THE Republican had to be prodded to use them.

cryptoguardian - let's not forget that Spano continually ignored the Federal government's mandate about creating affordable housing in Westchester, and kept kicking it down the road, and now THE Republican has to deal with it.

"You can beat a dead horse to death
of course
but no one can ride a dead horse
of course
not even if, that is the horse
is totally in discourse"

This bridge has been shut down several times over the past few years, usually for a couple of months at a time. Thanks to the previous County Executive Andy Spano neglecting this part of the county, the people in a low-income area are continually inconvenienced and forced to take alternate more costly routing to their employment.
