LI Residents Concerned Over 6-Way Intersection In Lindenhurst

LINDENHURST, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A six-way intersection on Long Island is causing a lot of concerns for residents.

The six-way intersection between 31st Street, Catskill Avenue and North Strongs Avenue only has two stop signs — creating a confusing situation for drivers.

Lee Stiffel, of Lindenhurst, has lived near the intersection for 22 years. She said there are at least two accidents per month, including one recently where a car flipped over. 

“At night especially, it’s become like a drag race,” Stiffel told WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall.

Stiffel said her dog was also killed in the intersection. She has continuously complained to Town of Babylon officials.

“If you put a street light here, it would solve everything,” Stiffel said. “You’d have cars having to wait to make the appropriate turns instead of literally playing Russian roulette.”

A spokesperson for the Town of Babylon said officials will continue to examine the intersection and any line-of-sight issues that may be present.
