West Shore Road
One of only two main roadways leading to the tiny community was washed out by superstorm Sandy and business owners really suffered.
Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and other officials cut the ribbon on Monday and Tuesday was the first morning drive for it since Sandy.
Officials say the repair of West Shore Road will take nine months to complete. With the roadway closure, residents have temporarily lost the unique vital link to Bayville, Oyster Bay Hamlet and Centre Island.
