Mount Sinai, NY - March 3, 2017 - Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker is pleased to announce that two public information meetings will be held to discuss the proposed design for the Port Jefferson-Wading River Rails to Trails project. The two dates for the public meetings are as follows:

Wednesday, March 22nd at 6:00pm
Shoreham-Wading River High School
250 Route 25A, Shoreham, NY 11786

Wednesday, April 5th at 6:00pm
Miller Place High School
15 Memorial Drive, Miller Place, NY 11764

The proposed trail, spearheaded by Legislator Anker, is a 10-mile long shared-use recreational path. It will be built along the abandoned Long Island Rail Road right-of-way, currently owned by the Long Island Power Authority. The trail will run through the hamlets of Port Jefferson Station, Mount Sinai, Miller Place, Sound Beach, Rocky Point, Shoreham, East Shoreham, and Wading River.

These meetings will give residents an opportunity to hear from the Suffolk County Department of Public Works regarding the plan for design and construction of the trail. For more information, please contact Legislator Anker’s office at 631-854-1600.
