Rating Roads in Wantagh and Seaford

How well maintained are area roads?

In the last few weeks we've seen all types of weather. We've seen frigid conditions followed by high temperatures. Last week's heavy snow was followed by pouring rain.

All of this can be tough on area roads with potholes and icy spots during a deep freeze. But it's not the only thing that can wreak havoc on streets.

There can be construction, debris  and design issues.

We want to know what you think about area roads. Are they generally well maintained? If not, what areas need improvement and why? Let us know in the comment section below.

The photo above shows NY State maintenance of the intersection of NY 27 and Wantagh Avenue, with the sunken manholes that dot NY 27 from Massapequa west, presumably to avoid plows clipping a raised manhole.--- However, worse roads abound: Willoughby Avenue from Waverly Avenue to Merrick Road; Seaford Avenue from Waverly to Merrick, also; Waverly Avenue west from Seaman's Neck Road to Willoughby; Paddock Road for most of its length. --- Here and there, the Town of Hempstead has repaved a few yards of these heaving, bumpy roads, but a complete job needs to be done. Ask the Town, and they will say that the full repairs are not on schedule. However, the potholes and car-damaging defects number more than fifty to a block! --- The Town of Hempstead has thousands of miles of local streets, but they must be repaired. Delays will not fix the streets. Complete repaving must be stepped up.
