Finally! New Turn Signal at Washington Avenue

Legislator Judy Jacobs says Nassau County will install the long-awaited turn signal on the corner of Manetto Hill Road and Washington Avenue.

For more than 10 years, Nassau Legis. , D-Woodbury, and Plainview residents have been asking for a left turn signal on the corner of .

Recently, the Department of Public Works informed the Woodbury Democrat that it will install a left turn signal at the notorious corner.

Washington Avenue receives a lot of traffic. , the and are just some of the destinations  along Washington Avenue.

Jacobs is hopeful a left turn signal will be installed before the school year is done, but a firm date hasn't been set.

This is great news. Now we need to make the lanes more visible in the dark at the left turn from Old Country Road onto Round Swamp Road (near the LIE). It is very difficult to see the lane you are supposed to be turning into at that intersection at night. Many times cars have ended up on the wrong side of the road after making the turn.

It only took ten years of asking ? even with a longtime representative supporting it ? and it took TEN years. either Judy Jacobs has no clout or NCDPW is as corrupt as they come. Once again a sign of tax dollars not paying for what the community needs. There is absolutely no reason for the delay, TEN YEARS, come on. Think of it like this, let's say something happened to damage the signal, it would of been fixed within a few days, but for someone to actually make a decision for public safety, it takes TEN years.

With all of the over development going on right outside Plainview in near by Melville we should be seeing more traffic coming into Plainview. An example is the former Pumpkin farm now becoming the new Canon Headquarters. Where do you think their employees going to be driving through getting to and coming back through plus getting their lunch. It is Plainview. Don't us Plainview residents wish the farm never went away?

This is crazy. I thought she asked for a Traffic light. But all she wanted was a left turn signal added to an existing light! Dare i ask when tobay will pave the streets again? Roads are crumbling!

Hopeful by the end of the school year? Its January. The school year ends at the end of June. What is the delay? C'mon now!!

If it took them ten years to agree to do it, you really expect them to jump now. As far paving the streets, it only makes sense if they do it right. On Old Bethpage road there is a 1/4 mile seam in the road. All they do is patch it. When the patch wears, your car tires sometimes get caught in the groove.....Accident waiting to happen. All because, year after year, they patch it, not FIX IT.

They repaved our road 10 years ago and right after repaving decided it was time to rip up all the gas lines and replace them which totally ruined the repaving job.

At least you have gas lines, my entire area is gas free, so much for living in the modern world.

How about someone getting the town to re paint the white and yellow lines at each intersection on side roads in Hicksville and Plainview. I tried. Noone stops at stop signs anymore. Reprinting the lines will make a big difference.
