ADJUSTMENT TO TRAFFIC SIGNAL TIMING along the entire 16-mile stretch in Nassau County. The traffic calming measure will trim the signal cycle time so that pedestrians get more time to cross the road. At night, signal timing will be altered to slow traffic, so that drivers and pedestrians have more time to see each other in the road. ADDITION OF FIVE NEW CROSSWALKS with sidewalk ramps, pedestrian push buttons and countdown timers at existing traffic signals in Elmont on the west side of Belmont

Boulevard the west side of West Gate and the east side of Jacob Street. In Uniondale, the east side of California Avenue/Hofstra Boulevard and the east side of Silver Lane in Levittown. NEW TRAFFIC SIGNAL at Sterling Road in Elmont. MODIFICATION TO THREE TRAFFIC SIGNALS to better assist pedestrians at Biltmore Avenue in Elmont, Gotham Avenue in Elmont and Kernochan Avenue in the Village of Hempstead.

CONSTRUCTION OF MEDIAN FENCING between Carmen Avenue and Franklin Avenue in East Meadow. BUILDING RAISED MEDIANS where pedestrians frequently cross mid-block to provide refuge when crossing multiple lanes. RELOCATE SIX NICE BUS STOPS closer to crosswalks.
