Manorhaven Boulevard Groundbreaking
Legislator DeRiggi-Whitton is pleased to announce that the County will break ground on the Manorhaven Boulevard streetscape and revitalization project this fall.
The project entails:
• Repaving the County-owned portion of Manorhaven Boulevard•from Shore Road to Kirkwood Road;
• Adding ADA-compliant ramps to street crossings where they are•currently not in place;
• Replacing broken or buckled curbs and sidewalks;•Installing storm drains, curbs and gutters along the road where•needed;
• Replacing storm drain piping to address areas that flood during•heavy rainfall;Installing stop signs and crosswalks as recommended by an in-•depth traffic safety study;
• Adding decorative lamp posts to enhance aesthetic appeal and•supplement existing streetlights;
• Converting eastbound turn-in lanes in front of Manorhaven Park•and the police booth into small pocket parks with benches and plantings to create new green space and make the stop signs near crosswalks more visible;
• Adding bus shelters to the eastbound bus stops in front of•Manorhaven Park and the Adult Activities Center;
• Preserving all but five of•the 90 trees that currently line the boulevard. The five that are being removed must be taken out because their roots don’t allow enough space for the four-foot wide ADA-compliant sidewalks. A total of nine new trees will be planted.
Not only will these improvements enhance quality of life for Manorhaven residents and the entire Port Washington community, this investment in our infrastructure is bound to attract more businesses and visitors to Port’s “second Main Street!”20+ Miles of Road Repaving Projects for LD 11
