Supervisor's Weekly Report

Supervisor's Weekly Report

ROADWORK, RENOVATIONS, AND OTHER BIG NEWS

We’ve lucked out with great weather as our Town Employees are hard at work performing routine Park & Beach maintenance, undertaking major renovations, and repairs to the roads, facilities, and public amenities. Speaking of major operations, I would like to acknowledge ADJO Contracting for donating manpower and resources to the American Legion in St. James. ADJO has committed to paving the driveway and landscaping the backyard area at the hall, where the company stored equipment during Phase 1 of the Lake Avenue Revitalization project. I’m also pleased to announce that our Fall Bi-Annual Paper Shredding event produced the biggest turnout to date. 

COMMACK:

The Highway Department will be paving Washington Boulevard from Plymouth Boulevard to Kings Park Road this week. In addition, roadwork along Roosevelt Avenue from Wichard Blvd. to Fulton Blvd. and Washington Court is slated to begin, pending optimal weather conditions.

I’m extremely pleased to announce that our Parks teams will begin the Flynn Memorial Park project this month. Teams will begin demolition work on the buildings, and removal of electric, plumbing fixtures, asphalt, backstops, and cesspools. 

The new ballpark will feature synthetic turf fields with a built-in drainage system, LED Energy efficient sports lighting for night games, conditioned concession stand, pro shop and handicapped accessible bathrooms, covered bleachers, protective fencing along the outfield, and backstops to protect pedestrians walking from each field. We’re also planning to relocate and renovate the playground area, in addition to adding additional parking and storage. This exciting reconstruction will serve as an economic engine while providing our youth with state-of-the-art ball fields to play and compete on.

HAUPPAUGE:

Our Traffic Safety Department will be performing an in-house traffic signal rebuild at Grandview Lane & Old Willets Path this week. 

As the New Highway & Adams Avenue road widening project continues, our Traffic Safety Department will be pouring foundations for traffic signals at Marcus Avenue and New Highway at the beginning of next week.

The project, which includes new sidewalks, modern traffic signals, Energy-Efficient lighting, landscaping, and signage, will offer much safer roads for motor vehicles to share with bicyclists, runners, and pedestrians. 

Repairs to uprooted sidewalks and concrete are currently underway along Sunset Lane.

KINGS PARK:

As curb work nears completion along Park Avenue, Collins Avenue, and Meridian Avenue, the Highway Department is busy finishing up milling and plans to begin paving work this week. Residents should plan on using alternate routes, or allow for additional travel time while your roads are being repaired. 

Preparations have begun in anticipation of installing the new playground equipment at Kings Park Memorial. Our Parks Department will begin with the playground surfacing starting next week.

NESCONSET: 

The Highway Department is expected to begin Milling and Asphalt work along Cedar Avenue, Roseanne Court, and Glen Hill Court this week. Roadwork will be ongoing through the next few weeks pending weather and climate conditions.

Road Work along Browns Road from 347 to Nicholls Road, and along Gibbs Pond Road from Nicholls to Smithtown Boulevard is nearing completion. Residents can access the Town App for potential delays. 

Our Parks Department is going to be rebuilding the skateboard ramp top and sides at the Armory Park (at Smithtown Library in Nesconset). Repairs are expected to be completed towards the beginning of next week.

SMITHTOWN:

I’m pleased to say that our Parks Department has completed the lettering on the “Smithtown” sign late last week. The installation of electric work, laying of top soil, and landscaping are expected to be complete by the end of next week. We will be installing historic markers that track Richard Smith’s historic bull ride throughout our town, beginning at the statue of Whisper. Plans to unveil the first marker are slated for the last week in October. 

Roving road closures along Terry Road for curb maintenance and repairs will continue this week. 

A joint effort between the Highway Department and SCWA to repair drainage infrastructure along Landing Avenue at Landing Meadow is underway and should only take a few days. One way traffic at the intersection may be in effect at times. Residents who use this route may want to prepare for an extra few minutes to get to your destination. 

ST. JAMES:

The concrete work has begun along Lake Avenue from Woodlawn to Jericho. Detours are available for commuters. This project is expected to take one month to complete, which includes paving. This much needed project will provide for much safer conditions for pedestrians, bicyclists, and drivers, and serves as the beginning of the Lake Avenue Revitalization initiative. 

The Highway Department has completed paving along Moriches and Harbor Hill Road in front of the General Store. The Traffic Safety team has installed two solar powered LED crossing beacons with push button activation. In approximately two weeks, when the pavement has cured, our Traffic Department will install the cobblestone style pedestrian crosswalk. Landscaping across from the General Store is expected to begin later this week.

Asphalt road work along Long Beach Road continues this week. Residents in the area should check with the Town App for potential road delays. 

New storage units along the soccer fields have been installed at Moriches Park, and our Parks team has completed the new turf surfacing at the kiddie area playhouse.
