Invest in our Evacuation Routes.
Fix the 878 and Cross Bay Blvd. now!
July 3, 2014
We have made tremendous progress in our Sandy recovery, however we must not overlook the most basic necessity, which is our ability to evacuate our families quickly and safely. Due to our geographic isolation, our communities in Rockaway and southern Queens have limited arteries that serve as evacuation routes, including the Nassau Expressway, Beach Channel Drive and Cross Bay Blvd. During peak hours, these thoroughfares are already congested and unable to support the heavy flow of traffic. I have teamed up with Nassau County Legislature Howard Kopel to call on Governor Cuomo to invest in our infrastructure and fix our roads and evacuation routes immediately. Waiting for another emergency to address some of these issues will be too late! Sign my petition today!
