Governor Andrew M. Cuomo earlier this month announced the completion of a pair of projects that enhance pedestrian safety and improved accessibility at crosswalks and intersections across Long Island. The completed projects include the first phase of Governor Cuomo's groundbreaking Pedestrian Safety Action Plan, which upgraded 225 uncontrolled crosswalk locations, created nearly two-dozen additional crosswalks, and added new traffic signals and signs at various locations in Nassau and Suffolk counties. A second safety project installed 292 wheelchair accessible ramps for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, added new crosswalks at 10 additional intersections, and installed new crosswalk buttons and pedestrian signals at another 39 sites.
