Mineola, NY - February 19, 2015 - Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano is proud to announce that the Department of Public Works (NCDPW) will be conducting a Complete Streets Traffic Study along Grand Avenue between Stanton Avenue and Merrick Road in Baldwin, Town of Hempstead, New York. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 24th, 2015 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the cafeteria of the Baldwin Senior High School, 841 Ethel T. Kloberg Drive, in Baldwin.
“This Complete Street project will take into consideration all users of the roadway, including pedestrians, cyclists, and transit users,” said County Executive Mangano. “I invite all members of the community to attend this public information and outreach meeting and encourage you to provide input regarding the project.”
The objective of the Grand Avenue Complete Streets Traffic Study is to identify feasible measures that will provide a safer environment for the users and stimulate economic development along the approximately 1.4 mile long study corridor. It generally includes proper provision of features such as sidewalks, crosswalks, traffic control signs and signals, lane striping and markings, pedestrian refuge areas, bicycle lanes and amenities, bus stops and pull-outs, curb cuts and other traffic calming measures.
To share the project information and solicit comments, NCDPW has scheduled a public information and outreach meeting. At the meeting, there will be a brief presentation by the NCDPW project team at 7:00 p.m., followed by a public input and comment session. Attendees will also have the opportunity to view displays depicting study data and information.
