BILL NUMBER:S6902

TITLE OF BILL: An act in relation to ordering a study and report on a
proposed extension of the Long Island Motor Parkway east from
Winchester Boulevard to Little Neck Parkway in the county of Queens;
and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration
thereof

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of this bill directs the commissioner of the department of
transportation to conduct a study on a proposed extension of the Long
Island Motor Parkway east from Winchester Boulevard to Little Neck
Parkway in Queens County. The study shall find the estimated cost of
the project, the duration of the project, the impact to local traffic
patterns and the environmental impact.

Section 2 provides that the department of transportation will report
the study's findings to the governor and the legislature by February
1, 2016.

This act will take effect immediately and will be repealed on February
2, 2016.

JUSTIFICATION:

The purpose of this bill is to improve the public space around the
Union Turnpike. For years Union Turnpike has been considered one of
the most dangerous areas in Queens for bicyclists and pedestrians with
one death occurring as recently as January 2014. By extending the
existing bike and walking path nearby contained within the Long Island
Motor Parkway, public safety can be greatly improved. This bill seeks
to order a study concerning the plausibility of this project.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

None.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS:

To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
