Nassau County's long-awaited resurfacing of Peninsula Boulevard recently began, more than a year after its project to connect the Inwood sewage pump station to the Bay Park facility.
“The resurfacing of Peninsula Boulevard is important as this roadway serves as a critical transportation route for the Five Towns and surrounding communities,” County Executive Mangano said in a statement. “This project, along with improvements to Branch Boulevard and Broadway, demonstrates our commitment to Nassau County's roadways.”
In its previous project, which caused huge traffic delays, the county resurfaced some of Peninsula Boulevard, leaving the rest of the road in less than great shape, according to residents.
This project will resurface the thoroughfare from Rockaway Turnpike to Rockaway Avenue. The outside contractors were chosen through competitive bids and agreed upon by the Nassau County Legislature on July 29, according to a county release.
"The resurfacing of Peninsula Boulevard will improve this important roadway as well as complement our improvements to Branch Boulevard and repaved Broadway very nicely,” said Legislator Howard Kopel (R-Lawrence), the alternate deputy presiding officer of the legislature.
