Southbound traffic on the Seaford-Oyster Bay Expressway begins

Route 135 was supposed to go from the South Shore to the North Shore, and eventually lead to a bridge to Connecticut. The Seaford-Oyster Bay Expressway was a great idea. It would have eliminated so many traffic problems, even more so today.

But it seems Oyster Bay couldn't be touched, so it was never finished. If you think it was hard then to get it agreed upon, just what do you think it would take now? Sometimes things just have to get done. We do need another way off the Island.
