The Village of Lindenhurst is eyeing more roadwork this coming Spring.
"Depending how much CHIPS funding from the State we get, we put together a preliminary list of roads we'd like to get done," Village Administrator Shawn Cullinane told Patch.
Among the locations listed by readers where perennial potholes have reappeared and roads they feel are in dire need of repaving included West Gates Avenue, South Eighth Street, West John Street and North Fifth Street, the on/off ramps for Wellwood Avenue on Sunrise Highway, the Wellwood overpass, Broadway to Strong Avenue, North Queens Avenue, Lido Parkway, 35th Street and Albany Avenue between Hoffman and Strong Avenues.
Some of those listed by readers are under the Village's purview, but some are under Babylon Town's purview and others are either Suffolk County or New York State roads.
Village Roadwork Projects
The roads maintained by the Village that made its list of roadwork projects include:
- The 200 and 300 blocks of Albany Avenue.
- South Eighth Street between Hoffman and Kent.
- Albert Street between North Kings and North Monroe Avenues.
- Finishing Wellwood from Kane Street to the North Village border.
- The 300 and 500 blocks of North Indiana AVenue.
- The 500 block of North Monroe.
Cullinane indicated the Village will also look to do some microsurfacing projects - like it did last year - but locations have yet to be determined.
He further noted the Village still has rebuilding North Queens Avenue on its radar, but is still waiting on federal funding that was approved several years ago.
If that funding finally comes through, then the Village could also move forward with rebuilding projects on John Street and Gates Avenue.
However, the Village, Cullinane said, has identified East Gates between South Wellwood and Smith Street as an immediate concern, and will also look to the CHIPS funding to repave that section as soon as possible.
Lastly, Cullinane said the Village is also looking at a road-raising project for the end of South Wellwood, from Spring Street to the Marina (Lindy Docks).
This would be paid - in part, if not all, depending how far the money could be stretched, Cullinane said - with $200,000 in funding that was secured last Fall by NYS Assemblyman Bob Sweeney, (D, Lindenhurst), through the State’s Community Capital Assistance Program.
