Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray and Councilman Ed Ambrosino have announced that road improvement projects on Bishop Place, Meredith Place and Roosevelt Boulevard in West Hempstead have commenced and will be completed in May. The enhancements will provide increased safety for area residents as well as beautify the neighborhood.
Careful planning went into these projects, which will include the installation of pedestrian access ramps at all intersections and new asphalt pavement.
"The constant freezing and thawing conditions of winter can play havoc on our roads, and now is the ideal time to rehabilitate roads that are in need of repaving," remarked Murray. "Keeping town roads in good repair increases safety and reduces maintenance costs."
"During the construction process, the town and its contractor take all possible measures to limit the inconvenience to residents," commented Ambrosino. "I am confident that neighbors will be very pleased with how these improvements enhance the curbside appeal of their homes."
"Continuing to invest in community upgrades is another way the Town of Hempstead is improving the quality of life for residents," concluded Murray. "We're pleased to be able to pursue important projects like this while preparing a 2012 budget that will freeze all town taxes at the same time."
