'SEEDS' presents results of four-year study in Southampton
A committee set up to find ways of easing East End traffic congestion presented the findings of its four-year development and transportation study in Southampton Thursday.
Sustainable East End Development Strategies, known as SEEDS, proposed ways to better connect land development and transportation, enhance town centers, preserve agricultural land and define regional development.
Officials say one of the most promising solutions is a light rail service that would run on Long Island Rail Road tracks in the five East End towns on both the north and south forks. The Five Town Rural Transit organization is expected to announce next week its proposal to set up light railcars and a connecting shuttle bus service.
