Long Island Complete Streets Coalition held its 16th annual Long Island Complete Streets Summit on Tuesday, with a focus on roads in Farmingdale.
A walking audit was conducted at the intersection of Fulton and Main streets. That’s where a woman and her grandson were struck in December.
As News 12 previously reported, the woman was subsequently dragged for blocks. It’s not the only accident that’s happened in the area. Some residents say they are hoping that streets can be narrowed and stop signs, bicycle lanes and traffic lights can be added to the area.
A store manager based at Fulton and Main streets told News 12 that over the years, there have been more accidents than he’s able to count.
While he did say things have gotten better because of changes to the traffic light, he said there’s still a problem with pedestrians being struck.
Following Tuesday’s walking audit, a report with recommendations will be put together and ultimately distributed to elected officials and municipalities.
