Inwood/Woodmere, NY - December 7, 2015 - Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and Legislator Howard Kopel today announced that Rockaway Turnpike, in the Inwood/Woodmere area, is being resurfaced as a part of “Operation Restore Our Roadways.”
The Rockaway Turnpike milling and resurfacing project takes place from Peninsula Boulevard to East Avenue. The resurfacing of Rockaway Turnpike will be completed the week of December 7th, weather permitting.
“Rockaway Turnpike is a main artery for our County and my administration continuously makes it a priority to restore County roadways for the safety of our residents and communities," said County Executive Mangano. “This critical road improvement project will benefit the residents that travel this road every day.”
“It’s thrilling to see the wheels of government turning in ways that positively impact our neighbors’ quality of life while also continuing to improve our infrastructure. Rockaway Turnpike is a roadway with shared jurisdiction between Nassau County and New York City. Thousands of area residents rely on this stretch of roadway in their daily commutes, as well as for shopping and as they go about their lives. I’m very excited that Nassau County is upgrading their part of the thoroughfare; the ball is now in New York City’s court to follow-through with their own needed upgrades on Rockaway Boulevard,” said Legislator Howard Kopel.
