On Thursday, June 15, Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Department of Transportation announced that a $25.8 million project will begin the week of June 19 to resurface key portions of the Northern State Parkway and Northern Avenue.

These projects aim to improve safety, mobility and resilience on busy roads.

Nearly 40 lane miles of the Northern State Parkway will be resurfaced from Wolf Hill Road in Huntington to the eastern end of Routes 347 and 454 in Smithtown.

In addition, three sections of Northern Boulevard are now scheduled for maintenance this year, totaling nearly 40 lane miles:

  • NYC Line to Russell Gardens, Lake Success, Flower Hill, East Hill, Muncy Park, and Old North Avenue at Roslyn Estate, and the North Hempstead area
  • Forest Drive to Glen Cove Road in East Hills and North Hempstead
  • Annandale Drive to Oyster Bay Cove and State Highway 108 at Laurel Hollow

Both projects will include clearing storm drains, installing new highly reflective pavement markings and updating sidewalk ramps in some areas to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

“As the summer construction season begins, we continue to make record investments to … improve travel across the state,” Hochul said, claiming that the Long Island project will “strengthen the bonds of the community” while also supporting the local economy and Improve the quality of life of residents.

In April 2022, Hochul announced a $157 million resurfacing project affecting several roads on Long Island, including the Babylon-Farmingdale Turnpike, currently in Phase 2.
