MOUNT SINAI, NY – Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker has spearheaded the winter clean-up of the road medians along New York State Route 25A. Through a partnership with the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Labor Assistance Program (SLAP) and the New York State Department of Transportation, the medians have been, and will continued to be, maintained to reduce traffic hazards, increase visibility, and promote overall quality of life.
After noticing the unkempt condition of the road medians, specifically in the Mount Sinai-Wading River corridor, Legislator Anker took action to ensure that the responsible agency was held accountable. By partnering with SLAP, the Department of Transportation is able to increase its maintenance efforts.
“The conditions of the road medians were unacceptable. Unmaintained vegetation can be hazardous to drivers and decreases overall quality of life. We work hard to maintain our communities and I will advocate to ensure that our government agencies are doing the same,” said Legislator Anker. “I would like to thank the Sheriff’s Office and DOT for their partnership on this project.”
