BROOKHAVEN HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT COMPLETES PAVING PROJECT BEFORE POSSIBLE HURRICANE

East Setauket, NY –With the uncertain path of Hurricane Joaquin and the National Weather Service calling for heavy rain in Brookhaven, the Brookhaven Highway Department worked diligently to complete the final step of an extensive paving project in East Setauket earlier this week. The roadways included in the project were: Abbey Lane, Bonnie Drive, Buccaneer Lane, Buckingham Meadow Road, Caterham Lane, Flint Court, Galleon Lane, Jean Court, Lemark Court, Marcy Court, Pleasant Drive, Redbridge Court, Spyglass Lane, Treasure Lane, Vicki Court and Waterloo Lane. Six of these streets required full depth reclamation, which involves the complete removal and replacement of roadway.

“With heavy rain in the forecast and the resources I may have to dedicate to a possible hurricane there was a very small window to complete this project,” said Highway Superintendent Daniel P. Losquadro. “Residents living in this community have waited a very long time to have these streets repaved and it is very gratifying to know we were able to stay ahead of the weather and get this done.”
