Projects Will Resurface and Repair Portions of Five State Highways in Nassau & Suffolk Counties
New York (STL.News) Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today 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 roadways for the flow of people and goods on Long Island.
“Safe and reliable roadways are the lifeblood of our communities and are critical for keeping us economically competitive,” Governor Cuomo said. “As we lay the groundwork for our post-COVID reconstruction and recovery, projects like these will allow for safer and more efficient travel across Long Island for residents and visitors alike.”
The first of road rehabilitation projects is underway in Nassau County on Glen Cove Road between Helen Street and Cedar Swamp Road (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.
