Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced a $30.6 million investment in pavement restoration projects that will resurface and repair portions of five state roads in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, totaling 20 miles.
The projects will improve driving conditions and enhance safety along key road ways for the flow of people and goods on Long Island.
The first of rehabilitation projects is underway in Nassau County on Glen Cove Rd. between Helen St. and Cedar Swamp Rd. (State Route 107) in the towns of North Hempstead and Oyster Bay.
Workers are replacing the pavement with two inches of fresh asphalt and installing new reflective lane markings and curb ramps compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Storm drains will also be cleaned, repaired and, where necessary, rebuilt.
Similar renewal will follow later this year and next year on:
- Jericho Turnpike (State Route 25) from the Nassau/Suffolk county border to Deer Park Rd. (Suffolk County Route 35) in the Town of Huntington, Suffolk County.
- State Route 112 between Sunrise Highway (State Route 27) and the Long Island Expressway (Interstate 495), Town of Brookhaven, Suffolk County.
- State Route 27A (Main St./Montauk Highway) between State Route 111 (Islip Avenue) and Sunrise Highway, Town of Islip, Suffolk County.
- Middle Country Rd. (State Route 25) between Terry Rd. and State Route 347), Town of Smithtown, Suffolk County.
- State Route 27 between South Etna Avenue and the Montauk Point Lighthouse, Town of East Hampton, Suffolk County.
All locations are expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
