DOT roadway repair projects enter design phase

Work scheduled to begin in Islip, Brookhaven later this year


A series of road treatment projects led by the New York State Department of Transportation have entered the design phase, according to NYSDOT documents.

The NYSDOT’s Priority Surface Treatment projects will target various roadways in Islip and Brookhaven towns, as well as neighboring Smithtown, Huntington, Hempstead and East Hampton towns.

In Brookhaven, one project will repair Route 112, beginning at Sunrise Highway and ending at the Long Island Expressway, approximately 3.13 miles. Work should begin on that project in summer of 2021, but as for all treatment projects, start dates may vary among each location.

In Islip Town, approximately 3.26 miles of roadway on Route 27A will be repaired from Islip Avenue to Sunrise Highway. Work is expected to begin this summer, according to DOT documents.

“The proposed pavement work will enhance safety and mobility of the motorists by providing a smooth riding surface, improve overall highway safety and mobility while reducing future maintenance costs,” one project document read.

The project will also install or upgrade sidewalk curb ramps to be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Another DOT project that impacts Brookhaven, the Concrete Pavement Repair project, will preserve the existing concrete pavement and extend its service life. That project will impact Sunrise Highway between Veterans Memorial Highway and Medford Avenue, and work is tentatively scheduled for spring of this year.
