SHIRLEY - Residents of one Shirley neighborhood say a cement company is causing traffic trouble.

Colin Drive residents say a large cement factory at the end of their street is making it dangerous for their children to play outside. They say cement trucks and other heavy equipment go up and down the street at least 75 to 100 times per day.

The Town of Brookhaven says it's negotiating with the concrete company to reopen an old entrance on Moriches-Middle Island Road to keep trucks off Colin Drive.
