Public forum to be held on Cross-Sound tunnel

Posted: Updated:
LOCUST VALLEY -

A public forum will be held in Locust Valley Wednesday evening over the controversial plan to build a Cross-Sound tunnel from Long Island’s North Shore.

As News 12 has previously reported, Gov. Andrew Cuomo resurrected the idea of an 18-mile tunnel from Syosset to the Rye/Port Chester area.

Critics site environmental concerns, and say the shoreline in Bayville could be dominated by 10-story high tunnel ventilation towers.

Supporters say it would reduce traffic and create jobs.

The meeting will be held at Locust Valley High School at 7 p.m.
