$11.6M Long Island road repaving projects get underway
Repaving work began Wednesday on five stretches of Long Island roads that were damaged by harsh winters, the state said.
Most of the work on the 12.3 miles of road will be done in short sections and at night to minimize the impact, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said in announcing the projects.
The work includes stripping and replacing the top layer of asphalt; repairing and cleaning drains; and creating high-visibility pedestrian crosswalks, the governor said.
The following sections of road will be repaired at a total cost of $11.6 million:
- State Route 454 from 13th Avenue to State Route 27 in Islip.
- State Route 114 from State Route 27 to Stephen Hands Path in East Hampton.
- State Route 25 from Wading River Manor Road to State Route 25A in Riverhead.
- State Route 106 from State Route 25A to Bay Avenue in Oyster Bay.
- State Route 110 from Henry Street to Lowndes Avenue in Huntington.
- The work is expected to be completed by the end of next year, the governor said in a news release.
