Update: Smithtown Moves Towards Safer Main Street

The good news for Long Island pedestrians keeps coming. Smithtown’s Main Street, the site of several tragic pedestrian fatalities, has just gotten a makeover. After significant work by advocates and community members, the state has implemented a modified road diet on Main Street, removing one westbound lane, reducing the total number of lanes to three on a busy six-block stretch, and also adding left-hand turn lanes at certain intersections. It’s hoped that these first steps will promote a more walkable and business-friendly downtown.
