Sound Beach, NY – Brookhaven Town Highway Superintendent Daniel P. Losquadro and Councilwoman Jane Bonner have announced the completion of two major paving projects in Sound Beach.
In the first paving project, Sound Beach Boulevard was resurfaced from North Country Road to New York Avenue and, in a separate project, 11 roads in the vicinity of North Country Road, New York Avenue and Shinnecock Drive were paved. Roads paved during this project included: Belmont Road, Block Island Drive, Blue Point Road, Dering Road, Gardiners Road, Halesite Drive, High Hill Drive, Milburn Road, Mitchell Drive, Shagwong Drive and Tuckahoe Road.
Between the two projects, Highway Department crews inspected, cleaned, repaired or replaced more than 150 drains before milling and paving could begin. The total cost for these two paving projects was just over $360,000.
“Over the last five years, we have completed several paving projects in Sound Beach,” said Losquadro. “These most recent two projects complement the previous work done in the area. The heavily-traveled Sound Beach Boulevard and the 11 roadways in the surrounding neighborhood are now safer and smoother for motorists and pedestrians.”
Councilwoman Bonner said, “I thank Superintendent Losquadro and the men and women of the Highway Department for making the roads safer in Sound Beach. The harsh winter weather we’ve had recently, and the years of neglect prior to Dan taking charge, took a toll on our infrastructure. Now, we are making great progress in my district and throughout the Town of Brookhaven.”
Sound Beach Civic Association President Bea Ruberto said, “We are so grateful for all the work that the Highway Department has done on our roadways, in particular on Sound Beach Boulevard. That roadway is one of the access roads into Sound Beach and it desperately needed to be repaved. There's been a lot of positive feedback from the community.”
