VIDEO: A New Year, A New Jackson Avenue

With only a few beautification tasks left, 2012 will prove to be a big year for all Jackson Avenue inhabitants.

After many months of , a trip down can finally be considered enjoyable. New turning lanes, extra street lights and sidewalk help the flow of traffic coming into and leaving Syosset.

With the new, smooth roadway, people are hopeful that will thrive on Jackson Avenue.

Yes, looks great, but what's with all the turning arrows? Over 50 from Jackson to Ira. I've had two near head-on collisions at Hillside North because of ill-placed arrows for Hillside and...? Early arrow for Lewis? Needs a reevaluation.

You're not the only one, Roger. Something's not right with the arrows approaching Ira Road from the south, either. Up until the Rite Aid shopping center, they all point right, as if you are in a right-turn-only lane - the way it always was. But then, once you pass the parking lot, you are suddenly given an option of going straight. Does that mean that, if you ignored the signs up until then, you now have the option to do whatever you want? Definitely either unfinished or in need of another look!

Hey..I live on Lucille Drive. They totally put us on the pay no mind list. We're the only ones without a turning lane. When making a left, we literally stop traffic in the main lane, like the way it used to be, or these drivers move to the right turn only lane only to turn back into the normal lane once they pass the intersection. Don't believe me? Check for yourself.
