Quick, add a couple of more lanes to speed up traffic in this dangerous area. That will make things safer.

It hasn't proven itself dangerous enough since they made it two lanes in one direction for Southampton, the powers that be are now in the process of doing the same to Route 58 in Riverhead. Time to go back to bicycles ? Lanes not wide enough for larger vehicles, let alone tractor-trailers. With all the brainiacs making dumb decisions, I'm glad I left the Island.

The hamptons will never return to the pre 1980 days. The mentality of don't build it and they won't come hasn't panned out. All that backward thinking was to give hardship to locals and visitors alike for years. Widening the road was the best quality of life construction done.

The vibrant economy is better than the old days of shopping at Grant's or Caldor's or traveling far to do Christmas shopping. ...more
