Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano announces that West Broadway, in the Hewlett, Cedarhurst and Woodmere communities will be restored as a part of “Operation Restore Our Roadways.”
The first phase of restoration will begin next week, and continue for several weeks, with two drainage projects aimed at addressing flooding concerns. These drainage concerns must be addressed prior to milling and resurfacing the County’s portion of West Broadway, from Broadway to Rockaway Turnpike. Milling and resurfacing is expected to take place in 2018.
County Executive Mangano stated, “West Broadway is a major artery for the Five Towns and these improvements will help mitigate flooding concerns while restoring the roadway for commuters.”
The restoration of West Broadway was originally included in the 2016 Capital Budget; however, the bonding for the Capital Budget was not approved by the Democrat Minority Caucus in the Legislature which impeded the progression of many necessary road projects throughout the county.
