Miller Place, NY - March 6, 2018 - Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker is pleased to announce that a public information meeting for the Port Jefferson-Wading River Rails to Trails project will be held on Thursday, March 15th at 6:00 PM at the Miller Place High School. The meeting will be “open house” style with maps displaying the proposed trail path. Representatives from the Suffolk County Department of Public Works and the Police Department will be available to answer questions. Written comments will be accepted.
The proposed trail is a 10-mile 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, which runs parallel to NYS Route 25A. 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. There will be a second informational meeting scheduled for later this spring. For more information, please contact Legislator Anker’s office at 631-854-1600.
