Port Jeff, Brookhaven get state road funds

The Town of Brookhaven and Village of Port Jefferson will receive funds for road construction and repair from the recently passed state budget, State Sen. Kenneth LaValle (R-Port Jefferson) announced Tuesday.

Brookhaven will receive $2,828,314 to patch up local highways, bridges and highway-railroad crossings under the Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program, he said, and Port Jefferson will get $131,059.

“I know this money will help many cash-strapped municipalities with repairs to the pock-marked and pot-holed roads that have erupted as a result of the harsh winter,” LaValle said in a news release.
