LONG ISLAND, NY (WCBS 880) – The Nassau County executive Edward Mangano is working to make some of the roads safer for pedestrians.

There are over 300 roads in Nassau County on Long Island and many of them are just not safe. In fact, some of the intersections are known as the most deadly for pedestrians in all of New York state.

 Mangano said he plans to make big changes, like in Bethpage where crews will be repainting the faded cross walks with reflective paint and changing the cross walk signs to countdown signals with better lighting.

The projects will be funded by the state. Other areas on the list are in Malverne, Hicksville and Massapequa.
