NYSDOT announced construction began to resurface more than 4 mi. (6.4 km) of the Long Island Expressway (LIE/I-495) in western Nassau County.

The $9.5 million project between the Nassau/Queens line and Willis Avenue/Exit 37 in Roslyn Heights includes removing the worn top layer of pavement from all eastbound and westbound LIE main line travel lanes, making needed base repairs and then resurfacing the roadway with new asphalt overlay. Construction is being performed in stages on shorter sections of the LIE and during off-peak, nighttime hours between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. to minimize the impact of construction on motorists. At least one direction of the LIE will be open at all times.

"This project will provide a smoother, safer ride for more than one million vehicles that use this section of the LIE each week," NYSDOT Commissioner Joan McDonald said. "Keeping in line with the goals of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Driver’s First initiative, the State Department of Transportation is prioritizing the needs of motorists and ensuring that disruptions are as minimal as possible."

The project includes new pavement markings, audible roadway delineations to help prevent off-road drifting, and replacement of vehicle detectors and traffic loops to help alert the public about current LIE traveling conditions via NYSDOT’s INFORM transportation management center (TMC). Resurfacing construction operations will begin in the westbound direction, Monday through Friday, weather permitting, and will continue through the end of June. In July, eastbound resurfacing construction will take place Sunday through Thursday, weather permitting, and will continue through the fall.
