Glen Cove lawmakers to vote on increased road safety measures

Posted: Updated:
GLEN COVE -

Glen Cove City Council will vote tonight on whether to reduce the speed limit on certain roads.

Lora Cusumano co-founded the group Shore Road Neighbors last year. Its goal is to make traffic conditions safer on the road that turns into The Boulevards in Sea Cliff and is home to marinas, restaurants, ballfields and residents. The group's members want lower speed limits and more signs and crosswalks.

Currently, the speed limit goes from 25 mph in Sea Cliff to 30 mph in Glen Cove -- just a short drive down the same road.

City Council will vote to make the speed limit consistent, lowering it to 25 mph on Shore Road and the connecting Albin Street. The council is also expected to vote on parking restrictions along Shore Road near the animal shelter.

Mayor Tim Tenke says he expects the measures to pass. If they do, the speed limit change and new signs would go up around April 1.

Nassau Legislators say the county, which owns Shore Road, is planning a traffic study for next year before tackling improvements to Shore Road.
