Letter: Hazardous stretch along Route 110 repair

I'd like Newsday and Huntington Town Supervisor Frank Petrone to know that the Route 110 construction project is truly a safety hazard to drivers and pedestrians ["Traveling on the rocky road of progress," News, Aug. 6].

The existing road is in such poor condition that it desperately needs to be milled down. Temporary patches have deteriorated into deep ruts, which are damaging cars and risking lives as people swerve to avoid them.

I called the town to voice my concern and was referred to state officials.

Michael Rampello, Melville
