The New York State Department of Transportation (DOT) will be making new safety improvements to Route 109 in East Farmingdale, thanks to the efforts of Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (8th Senate District).
After receiving a request from Senator Fuschillo and the East Farmingdale Civic Association to investigate the safety conditions at the intersection of Route 109 and East Carmans Road, the DOT studied the area and determined that a right turn lane should be installed on the westbound side of Route 109 to enhance safety. Construction for this new turning lane is slated to begin this summer.
The DOT is also installing new speed zones along Route 109, from the Nassau/Suffolk County line to a point just west of Little East Neck Road. This will improve safety conditions for residents who live in close proximity to Route 109.
"After speaking with local residents, who were greatly concerned about the dangerous traffic conditions along this stretch of road, I requested an investigation by the DOT so that we could find a solution to these problems," said Senator Fuschillo. "The resulting improvements will greatly enhance the safety conditions along Route 109 and signify a major victory for the residents of East Farmingdale."
