MTA seeking public comment on bridge
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is seeking public comment on the environmental assessment of a bridge project in Thomaston.
Comment on the assessment of the Colonial Road Bridge is due by Jan. 13.
The project, which will rebuild the bridge, was redesigned after community concerns were raised regarding noise and aesthetics.
The bridge carries automobile and pedestrian traffic over Long Island Rail Road tracks.
“It’s a better project and a better fit for the community,” State Sen. Jack Martins (R-Mineola) said in a statement. “Not only is the new design a vast improvement on the bridge, it offers more plantings and screening. A true win-win.”
The environmental assessment can be found at Great Neck Public Library and Thomaston Village Hall, or by visiting mta.info/lirr and searching for “Colonial Road.”
