More on street drainage

My issue of the Wantagh-Seaford Citizen dated 4.17.2008 has arrived. On page 8 is a six-paragraph press release from Supervisor Kate Murray and Councilwoman Angie Cullin on the road improvement project "for the Guildford Park Area of Seaford" "slated for completion in July." Subscription to the Citizen is only $32 for two years. Link here.

Waverly Avenue digging, 4.2.2008

I have deleted my previous post about the street construction, because much has become obvious. It seems that the digging project along Waverly Avenue, Bit Path, and Locust Avenue involves drainage. Various gas and water lines, perhaps also electricity and telephone, have to be moved to make way for better drainage. Twelve big 48-inch pipes were stored on Waverly Avenue, plus what appear to be concrete catchbasins marked for Guildford Park Drive. Yet there are many locations that have surveyors' marks that seem to indicate more excavations. Further information is welcome.

Half of Seaford train station is closed

As of April 2, 2008, the east half of the Seaford train station is closed. Passengers must use the stairways at Jackson Avenue. The escalator is out of service for replacement. The ticket machines and the mail box have been relocated to the north side of the escalator. Passengers buying tickets will first have to walk east to the ticket office and machines, then west to Jackson Avenue to reach the six-car section of the platform that remains in use. Passengers traveling to Seaford must sit in the west six cars, as other car doors will not open at Seaford.
