The purpose of the tour, which was led by the Merrick Chamber of Commerce, was for interested Baldwin residents to gain first-hand knowledge of Complete Streets principles, which are designed to improve safety for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists alike.
Aportion of Grand Avenue in Baldwin will utilize the principles as part of an upcoming Nassau County road project. Details about the Complete Streets project, frequently asked questions and professional studies can be reviewed at https://www.nassaucountyny.gov/4257/Grand-Ave-Baldwin.
