Governor Cuomo Announces $16.2 Million Extension of Ocean Parkway Coastal Greenway Shared Use Path

Oct. 1, 2019

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the start of construction on a $16.2 million project to build the last section of the Ocean Parkway Coastal Greenway Shared Use Path in the town of Oyster Bay, Nassau County, and the towns of Babylon and Islip in Suffolk County. The new path will enhance safety for cyclists, walkers, runners and skaters; promote green transportation; and attract people to the natural beauty of beaches and State parks on Long Island. "The Ocean Parkway Coastal Greenway will provide cyclists, runners and walkers new opportunities to get outside while at the same time providing a new route for people to get to the many outdoor recreational activities the area has to offer," Governor Cuomo said. "This extension will give more residents and visitors a safe, healthy and environmentally sound way to get around Long Island." "This project will extend the popular shared use path along Long Island's coastal route to increase access and boost tourism," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. "The 10-mile extension will complete the last section of the path in Nassau and Suffolk counties, which will enhance public safety and further promote biking, running, walking, and other recreational activities in the area. This effort builds on our commitment to promote active, green transportation, attract more visitors, and strengthen the economy." This final leg of the Ocean Parkway Coastal Greenway will lengthen the existing path on the northern side of the parkway from its current end at Tobay Beach an additional ten miles to Captree State Park. Hundreds of new plantings natural to Long Island's shoreline - such as beach grass, evergreen trees, bayberry plants, and beach plums - will be planted as part of the project. Shaded rest stops will be placed approximately every three miles along the path. Informational panels will be installed detailing the history of Long Island's beachfront and highlighting the new vegetation and local wildlife. Signs will direct users and show distances to nearby public facilities. The path, compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, will extend the smooth asphalt riding surface used on previous sections, and will feature standard lane markings and signs. Bridges over existing pedestrian walkways will be pre-fabricated off site, allowing for faster, more efficient construction at a lower cost than building on site. Cable guiderail will separate the Ocean Parkway from the Greenway, providing a safe barrier between motorists and path users. Traffic calming measures, such as curves in the path, will slow bicyclists at driveways, and signs will alert motorists and path users of crossing traffic. New bicycle parking areas will be installed at Gilgo Beach, Cedar Beach Marina, and Captree State Park. The Department of Transportation held a joint public meeting with the Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation on this project in October of 2017, where it received overwhelming support from local biking clubs and civic groups. DOT and Parks continued to work with and the local barrier beach communities to ensure preservation of the area's natural beauty. The path will be built entirely within the existing parkway right-of-way and will be buffered from the residential communities, with no direct access. During design, care was taken to protect the habitat of the endangered piping plover, minimize impacts to existing vegetation and guard against erosion from rising water levels. Nesting boxes will be installed off the path as a safe space for growing wildlife. To accommodate summer beach visitors, major construction began after Labor Day weekend. Project completion is scheduled for the summer of 2021. Extending the Ocean Parkway Coastal Greenway will add to the growing network of more than 20 miles of shared use paths built over the past decade on Long Island. In the spring, Lieutenant Governor Hochul cut the ribbon on another shared use path in Jones Beach, a 4.5-mile extension on the barrier island's West End connecting to the existing Greenway via the iconic Jones Beach Boardwalk. By the end of 2019, a new path will be completed along the Nassau Expressway (State Route 878) in the town of Hempstead, Nassau County as part of a $130 million resiliency and safety enhancement project. Department of Transportation Commissioner Marie Therese Dominguez said, "The Ocean Parkway Coastal Greenway extension will encourage more cyclists, walkers and runners to get outdoors, and enjoy Long Island's beaches and parks. It will provide an important link, connecting two of the state's largest State Parks, in the growing network of shared use paths that offer a green alternative to driving." State Parks Commissioner Erik Kulleseid said, "The ever-expanding network of shared use paths has been a big hit with the people visiting our beaches and State Parks on Long Island. I'm grateful to the Department of Transportation for this latest extension of the Ocean Parkway Coastal Greenway Shared Use Path, which will connect people with even more State Parks." Senator John Brooks said, "We've been 'pedaling' this idea for a number of years now and I'm proud to say the time has finally come. This is a most welcomed addition to the current pathways that have been a mainstay for local outdoor enthusiasts. Many residents have expressed a keen interest in this expansion and the groundbreaking of this project underscores our commitment to the growth of outdoor activities at Jones Beach and serving the growing interest in the cycling community here on Long Island." Senator Phil Boyle said, "I'm proud to have partnered with Governor Cuomo, Supervisor Schaffer, and the great professionals at the New York State Department of Transportation as work begins on this long anticipated 'shared use path'. I look forward to the future ribbon cutting which will allow countless New Yorkers to enjoy this path and the natural beauty of our barrier beaches." Assembly Member Michael LiPetri said, "I am happy to see the final phase of the Ocean Parkway Coastal Greenway Shared-Use Path come to fruition. When completed, this 14.4 mile path will provide Long Islanders a new opportunity to enjoy and explore our unique coastal resources. I would also like to thank the Department of Transportation for working with the barrier beach homeowners and community leaders to address their concerns about access, safety, and privacy throughout this project. Together, we can ensure that the Shared-Use Path is enjoyed by all for years to come!" Assembly Member Andrew Garbarino said, "It's great to see this project get closer to its completion. The finished Coastal Greenway will provide even more opportunities to enjoy Long Island's coastline for both locals and tourists. I commend the Governor and the Department of Transportation for providing a safe way for more people to see Ocean Parkway's natural beauty." Nassau County Executive Laura Curran said, "In Nassau County we welcome opportunities to allow residents to safely bike, run, walk or skate - especially in parks and beaches. Thank you to Governor Cuomo for his work to complete the extension of the Ocean Parkway Coastal Greenway Shared Use Path, which will give residents another option to safely enjoy the outdoors." Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone said, "This extension will promote the South Shore scenery, reduce congestion, and encourage a healthier and active lifestyle for Long Islanders. I want to thank Governor Cuomo for his commitment to improving our recreational assets, making them safer and more accessible for everyone to enjoy." Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino said, "The pathway along Ocean Parkway provides our residents with a great recreational experience, as well as a safe, unique way to travel one of our State's most picturesque areas. The completion of this path will further help enhance the experience for everyone who utilizes this beautiful amenity of Long Island, as well as those looking to visit our picturesque, south shore beaches." Babylon Town Supervisor Richard Schaffer said, "The Town Board and I would like to thank Governor Cuomo for New York State's continued investment in the South Shore of Long Island. The Ocean Parkway Coastal Greenway Shared Use Path will give Town of Babylon residents a safe and scenic way to travel between our beautiful barrier beach facilities at Overlook, Cedar and Gilgo beaches." Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter said, "As Islip Town Supervisor, I would like to thank Governor Cuomo for his efforts in expanding the Ocean Parkway Coastal Greenway Shared Use Path. Our waterfront is one of our most cherished resources and we look forward to the benefit this project will bring to our residents and their enjoyment of our waterways."

Governor Cuomo Announces Completion of Two Projects Totaling $14 Million in Highway Work in Suffolk County

Sep. 19, 2019

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced completion of two road and bridge projects to enhance safety and support the regional economy in Suffolk County. A $7.6 million project to repair the North Ocean Avenue (Suffolk County Route 83) bridge over the Long Island Expressway (Interstate 495) in the town of Brookhaven has just finished, and a $6.4 million project to rehabilitate a portion of Route 231 (Deer Park Avenue) in the towns of Babylon and Huntington was completed earlier this summer. "Maintaining and enhancing our transportation infrastructure is key to supporting Long Island businesses and helping to keep residents and visitors safe on the road," Governor Cuomo said. "We are making historic investments all across the state to keep our transportation network and our regional economies moving." State Department of Transportation Commissioner Marie Therese Dominguez said, "These projects have enhanced safety along two main thoroughfares that are vital to Suffolk County businesses and residents. People now have a smoother and more efficient path to access the goods and services they need." Route 231 Concrete Repairs The two-year project involved in-depth repairs to the concrete pavement along Route 231 between the Southern State Parkway and the LIE. Portions of the road were replaced with newly poured concrete, while precast concrete was used in other places. Smaller concrete repairs were made throughout this section of Route 231. Driving conditions were enhanced and the life of the pavement was extended, saving taxpayer money. Crews worked primarily overnight to smooth and repair over four miles of Deer Park Avenue, mainly in the busy commercial areas of North Babylon and Deer Park. That stretch of road carries nearly 48,000 vehicles daily. A similar repair project is expected to begin early next year primarily between Lake Avenue and the Long Island Expressway. Senator Phil Boyle said, "I'm extremely pleased that the NY Rt. 231 concrete surface repair project has been completed. I thank Regional Director Brown for insuring that a comprehensive repair of the road, with the replacement of entire sections of concrete slabs and not just simple patching, was completed. My constituents in the North Babylon and Deer Park communities are thrilled to have a smoother riding surface that should last for years to come." Senator John Flanagan said, "The completion of both of these projects will greatly enhance the safety and comfort of all who drive in these areas and we appreciate the effort of all the workers who made them a reality. These projects demonstrate our state's collective effort to upgrade and improve our infrastructure to preserve our roads for this and future generations. With these projects complete, I look forward to working with my partners in government to continue this utilization of state dollars to enhance the future for all Long Islanders." Assembly Member Andrew Raia said, "With much of New York's infrastructure in need of repair, I commend the Governor for working with the State Legislature in distributing over $6 million to help rehabilitate Deer Park Avenue in Huntington and Babylon. This investment comes on top of the millions of dollars the Governor and Legislature have allocated for infrastructure projects all throughout New York in just the past few years, and I am proud of the work we have been able to accomplish together." Assembly Member Kimberly Jean-Pierre said, "Ensuring that our roadways are safe and accessible is essential for maintaining a high quality of life for our residents and allowing our businesses to thrive. I thank Governor Cuomo for investing in these critical road repairs that will undoubtedly enhance our local community." Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone said, "Governor Cuomo continues to step up for Suffolk County by providing critical infrastructure investments that both improve safety and navigation along some of our most important roadways. Infrastructure remains a top priority as we work to modernize our roadways and build a 21st century transportation network across Suffolk County." Babylon Town Supervisor Richard Schaffer said, "This is an important infrastructure project for the Long Island region that will enhance road safety for our residents and visitors and improve transit to the benefit of our local businesses. I applaud the Governor for being a committed champion of modern transit for our state." Huntington Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci said, "State funding that comes back into the Huntington community for improvements to our heavily-traveled roads, like the Dix Hills stretch of Route 231, is critical to maintaining infrastructure and commuter safety." Marc Herbst, Executive Director, Long Island Contractors' Association, said, "We applaud Governor Cuomo on the completion of these two critical Long Island projects, the North Ocean Avenue bridge and the rehabilitation of Route 231. Long Island is a major hub of economic activity, and our highways, roads and bridges carry thousands of hard working Long Islanders and families every day. It is paramount that Long Island's infrastructure receives equitable funding for necessary repairs and maintenance. A special thanks to LICA members Bove Industries, Inc. and Peter Scalamandre & Sons, Inc. who served as general contractors on these projects. We look forward to even more infrastructure development on the island as the year ends and going into 2020." North Ocean Avenue Bridge Deck Replacement This project involved removing and rebuilding the bridge deck, while accommodating the more than 43,000 vehicles that use the bridge daily. Work was done in stages to keep five of the seven travel lanes open during construction. Sidewalks approaching the bridge and on both sides of the bridge were replaced. The project began in early 2018. Senator Monica Martinez said, "It gives me great pleasure to announce the completion of the North Ocean Avenue Bridge Deck Replacement project in conjunction with the NYS Department of Transportation and Governor Cuomo. The completion of this local project facilitates the commercial and residential growth of our community. I look forward to our continued partnership with local stakeholders and the Governor's office to identify and initiate further capital projects that will enhance the district's infrastructure." Town of Brookhaven Supervisor Ed Romaine said, "The North Ocean Avenue bridge is one of the most traveled in Brookhaven Town. The upgrade of this major county road has made it safer to cross for our residents, and demonstrates a commitment by the state to make infrastructure improvements a priority on Long Island." Town of Brookhaven Superintendent of Highways Dan Losquadro said, "While a County road, the completion of this project is a significant improvement to the overall infrastructure that Brookhaven residents utilize every day." Motorists are urged to slow down and safely move over when approaching roadside vehicles displaying red, white, blue, amber or green lights, including maintenance and construction vehicles in work zones.
