Selden, NY – Brookhaven Town Highway Superintendent Daniel P. Losquadro and Councilman Kevin LaValle have announced the completion of a 12-road paving project in a residential Selden neighborhood just south of Middle Country Road.

This extensive paving project required the Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) process due to the severe deterioration of the roadways. FDR involves the total replacement and removal of a roadway, with 100% recycling of the old pavement, which essentially turns the old road into the new base.

Before paving could begin, crews removed and replaced more than 8,000 square feet of concrete aprons, over 600 square feet of sidewalk and 5,000 linear feet of concrete curbs. The total cost for this paving project was $1,434,233.

Superintendent Losquadro said, “The 12 roadways in this paving project were in extremely poor condition and, since being resurfaced, will now provide a much smoother, safer ride for residents and area motorists. Since I took office nearly five years ago, we have been strategically working our way through the Town, addressing the roadways in the most severe need of attention. It is nice to see the progress that we are making with each project that is completed.”

“The paving that has been completed in Selden makes it safer for all who drive, bicycle and walk through the neighborhood,” said Councilman LaValle. “I thank Superintendent Losquadro and the men and women of the Highway Department for getting this major project done in my district and for all the important work they do throughout the Town.”

Roads paved during this project include Camp Drive, Emlu Drive, High View Drive, Montauk Street, Osage Street, Park Hill Drive, Peconic Lane, Peconic Street, Robin Road, Tuscala Street, Urban Drive and Wyanet Street.
