NESCONSET - Reports say there is a deal in place that should lead to the opening of the second Sonic restaurant on Long Island.

Lawyers tell Newsday that the Smithtown Board of Zoning Appeals will now allow a Sonic at the corner of Middle Country Road and Alexander Avenue in Nesconset.

The board was accused of acting improperly when it first rejected Sonic's plan in 2012.

Sonic says it will make design changes to please neighbors, including an entrance and exit ramp on Alexander Avenue.

Neighbors who live by the proposed location say their town has sold out by bowing to Sonic's concessions. They cite traffic and noise concerns as reasons why it should not be built.

The town still has the right to require additional traffic and noise concessions before it issues a final permit later this month.
