Report: Traffic Study Approved by Village Planning Committee

Study extends the Revitilization Plan for Upper Port Jefferson.

In February, the village saw a proposal from architects and village residents Michael Schwarting and Frances Campani that studied the area around Upper Port Jefferson and proposed architectural and zoning changes. A study was promised to analyze the traffic patterns and traffic flow through the area, the results of which were said to influence any final plan presented to the public.

The Port Times Record reported on Thursday that the village's Comprehensive Planning Advisory Committee "approved the study last week that suggests changes to improve the flow of traffic in upper Port, such as timing traffic lights to match activity at the Long Island Rail Road station."

"The study was submitted to the village Board of Trustees by engineering firm VHB at the end of June," the paper reported.

The study will now be combined with the revitalization plan.

Yup, need to move traffic through upper Port as fast as possible so no one gets hurt or killed, or has to look around at the disgrace the area has become for too long. Good spending of $$ once again PJV!
