NY Route 112 Safety and Mobility Improvement Project

The New York State Department of Transportation advised motorists to be reminded of posted work zone speed limits and to drive carefully because of the work that's being done on Route 112. The work being done for the NY Route 112 Safety and Mobility Improvement Project will limit 112 to one lane in each direction between Route 347 and Hallock Avenue in Port Jefferson station with a dedicated turning lane starting November 8.

The Project, expected to take a year to complete will have the state performing major drainage and road reconstruction work. What New Yorkers will be able to expect after this is a new bike lane, a center turning lane, raised medians, storm water drainage and better road traction.

There will also be updated pedestrian signals and longer sidewalks for pedestrian safety.

“Most of this roadway was constructed in 1937 and in the past twenty years, traffic has grown from 17,000 vehicles per day using this section of NY Route 112 to approximately 26,000 per day using the same roadway,” the DOT announced.

Motorists will still be able to access businesses and homes along the route throughout the route, depending on the construction being done in certain areas. The New York State DOT reminds everyone of the posted advisories and work zone speed limits for the safety of both motorists, pedestrians and the highway work crew.
