Follow Up Regarding Patchogue-Holbrook Road Bridge

The civic has received additional information regarding the bridge project that we'd like to pass along:
  • Crews have been working every day since the community meeting.
  • As was requested by the community, the number of left turn lanes from the North Service Road onto the bridge was reduced to one from two.
  • They are working on getting a left-turn signal on Patchogue-Holbrook Road & the North Service Road (northbound while on the bridge) to help move traffic along quicker.
  • They will be putting "Do Not Block the Box" pavement markings on the intersection with the South Service Road.
  • They have moved the detour sign on Patchogue-Holbrook Road BEFORE Union Avenue to give unfamiliar drivers the opportunity to take Union Avenue as an alternate.  
  • They have increased signage on the entrance ramps to the LIE before the bridge in each directions.

We will continue to pass on additional updates as received.  Thanks again to everyone who attended and provided practical and sometimes obvious solutions to some of the traffic impacts of this bridge project.
