With a $4.4 billion deficit and state budget cuts looming, the Long Island Contractors’ Association (LICA) wants to make sure that projects planned to improve Long Island’s highways, roads and bridges aren’t cut, postponed or under-funded during budget deliberations, which are going on now in our state’s capital. We need YOU to make your voice heard!
Let your state legislators know that Long Island wants what it was promised. We must make sure these critical infrastructure projects continue to move forward without delay. And we’ve made it easy for you to tell them!
Simply select the project(s) below that affects you, your neighborhood or your commute and fill out your name and home town.

For those who want the remainder of Route 347 completed, we need to urge our elected leaders to fight for additional funding to move this critical project forward. As of today, only 4.3 of the nearly 15 mile stretch of roadway has been reconstructed and there are no funds allocated in the current budget or 5 year capital plan to complete it. When you select the 347 project below, your email will reflect your urgent request for additional funding.
A plan was rolled out to completely rebuild the 15-mile highway from Hauppauge to Port Jefferson Station. Due to its size and cost, the undertaking was divided up into several phases. The first five phases, which began in Hauppauge and heads northeast, are now reaching a disruptive halt at Gibbs Pond Road, Nesconset. The state’s current capital program does not include any plans to seek bids to design and build any proposed phases, and the industry does not expect to receive requests for bids for at least the next half-decade. The next two phases planned continue first to Hallock Road, Lake Grove, and next to Nicolls Road, Lake Grove. The cost estimate for these next two phases, if comparable to the last two, is about $40 million each. The remaining 4-mile section to Jayne Boulevard, Port Jefferson Station, remains after that.
