Three intersections on Nicolls Road in South Setauket are slated for updates, and residents will have the chance to learn more about the project, comment and ask questions at an informational meeting coming up on Monday in Selden.
Intersections at Mark Tree Road, Hawkins and Wireless Roads, and Hammond Road will see various changes, including widening, extension or addition of turning lanes; timing of traffic lights and upgraded signals; crosswalks and pedestrian ramps; and more.
According to Suffolk Legis. Kara Hahn, D-Setauket, in whose legislative district the intersections fall, the changes make up the fifth of a six-phase improvement project along one of the county's most important roads.
"Nicolls Road is such a vital artery," Hahn said. "People from all over the district and from other districts utilize it for sure. I think it's important that the people who use that road every day have the opportunity to comment."
