S. Broadway at Somerset Ave & Lewis St
In response to a request by the Hicksville Gardens Civic Association the NYS Department of Transportation
re-designed the traffic signal control located on S. Broadway (Route 107) at Somerset Ave and Lewis St.
Left turn and pedestrian crossing signals with countdown timers were installed at the marked
crosswalks making this a much safer intersection for both vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
Traffic is running much smoother along New South Road at the LIRR crossing since the tracks were recently repaired and the roadway was regraded.
Thanks to Executive Board member John Simonello for coordinating this project with the LIRR and the Town of Oyster Bay.
South Broadway & Millwood Gate
In response to requests by the Hicksville Gardens Civic Association and the Hicksville Fire Department the state recently painted a white box at South Block Side Road”.
A “spill back” situation was occuring at the intersection with vehicles blocking access and egress from Millwood Gate. This was caused partially by the recent signal lights installed at the “5 Corners” intersection. This not only caused a blockage at the location but also created a safety hazard by delaying the response time by local volunteer firefighters.
