FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Major changes are coming to a stretch of a Long Island roadway where five teenagers were killed in May.
In Farmingdale, residents have been complaining for years about Conklin Street, where they said drivers speed on a regular basis. It’s also the site of numerous accidents.
Now, Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced major safety changes will be made to the road in the form of the two lanes going each way being reduced to one lane each way. A new left turn lane will also be added, WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reported.
