High fives to the advocates behind Motor Parkway East, who inched closer towards making their dream a reality. The NYS Senate unanimously passed legislation (S1566) authorizing the NYS DOT to conduct a study pertaining to a proposed expansion of the Long Island Motor Park east from Winchester Boulevard to Little Neck Parkway in Queens. The study will address the estimated costs, duration and environmental impact of the project, and the impact construction will have on local traffic patterns.
This bill was sponsored by State Senator Tony Avella (D-College Point, Whitestone, Bayside, Flushing, Jamaica Estates, Fresh Meadows, Bellerose, Floral Park, Jamaica, Douglaston, Little Neck, Auburndale, Kissena Park, Briarwood).
The bill now moves to the Assembly (A5103). It is sponsored by Assembly Member David Weprin (D-Fresh Meadows, Richmond Hill) with co-sponsors (thus far) Assembly members Edward Braunstein, Nily Rozic, Jo Anne Simon and Luis R. Sepúlveda.
