Are there lanes on your road that are not clearly marked?


It's time to take action ... and you've come to the right place!


It's time to "Fix This Long Island Road!"

THE PROBLEM:


Without the dollars to rebuild our nation's infrastructure, New York can't get on the road to economic recovery. That's why the road you drive on every day needs repaving ... why you get stuck in the same bottleneck or at the same intersection every day ... why the bridge you cross is covered with rust. In the national competition for federal infrastructure funds, New York State has failed to aggressively pursue its fair share or allocate dollars for projects on Long Island.
