Superintendent Losquadro, Councilman Panico Announce Completion of 1 Million Dollar Paving Projects in East Moriches

East Moriches, NY – Brookhaven Town Highway Superintendent Daniel P. Losquadro and Councilman Dan Panico have announced the completion of two paving projects in East Moriches.

The first project involved concrete restoration, milling and paving of 11 roadways in a residential East Moriches neighborhood. Crews repaired or installed nearly 6,200 linear feet of curb and 4,700 square feet of aprons prior to paving. Once concrete improvements were completed, 51,700 square yards of roadway were milled and nearly 6,400 tons of asphalt were put down as the 11 roadways were completely resurfaced. Roads paved during this project include Annette Lane, Berger Avenue, Carol Lane, Diane Lane, Driftwood Lane, Linda Lane, Memorial Boulevard, Pine Edge Drive, Roberts Lane, Woodfern Lane and Woodlawn Avenue. The total cost for this paving project was approximately $965,000.

In addition to this project, crews completed a boat ramp mitigation and stormwater protection project at the end of Maple Avenue in East Moriches. Intended to protect vulnerable infrastructure and alleviate flooding, the boat ramp was redesigned and extended to minimize impacts from storm surges and redirect stormwater away from the roadway and into a vegetated bioswale, or a natural, planted retention basin. During this project, Maple Avenue was raised and the parking area adjacent to the ramp was also resurfaced. The total cost for this project was $104,000, including a $50,000 Local Assistance Grant from the New York State Department of State Long Island South Shore Estuary Reserve.

Superintendent Losquadro said, “Both of these paving projects were necessary and provide some much needed relief for area residents and motorists.”

Councilman Panico said, “I’m pleased to see these paving projects completed for our residents. Superintendent Losquadro and the highway department are working hard to resurface and maintain our roadways in a town that is geographically larger than Nassau County. We are hopeful that the state of New York doesn’t cut our funding so that projects such as these can continue.”
