Town of Oyster Bay Supervisor Joseph Saladino assisted the town’s highway department in making the streets a little safer by placing speed limit signs along the southern service road of the Long Island Expressway in Jericho.
After receiving numerous concerns from residents in the community, Nassau County Police reached out to the supervisor’s office asking for the town’s assistance. As this stretch of roadway, known locally as South Marginal Road, is part of the Long Island Expressway service road, there had been no previously assigned speed limit. Upon surveying other local streets with similar configuration, it was determined that the appropriate limit on this stretch of the service road would be 45 mph.
Saladino met with Nassau County Highway Patrol and members of the town’s highway department to install a total of three new signs, designating the area speed limit to 45 mph.
“It is so gratifying to see the local community, local police department, and Town government come together for the betterment and overall safety of our residents,” said Saladino. “These new speed limit designations will help keep our streets a little safer, helping to provide peace of mind to our neighbors and hardworking police force.”
