The Committee will then, if warranted, submit the application to Traffic Engineering. Traffic Engineering will then do a site study and make a recommendation on the request. This may take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. The Traffic Safety Committee will make a decision based on a review of the original request application and the engineering site study.
The recommendation then goes to the Town Board and a hearing is scheduled. Once the hearing is held the Town will consider a resolution at the next Town Board meeting to finalize the process and effectuate the change.
This entire process may take several months before a final decision is rendered.
In other cases, the Town will alert other government agencies if it receives a request regarding a sign that is not in its jurisdiction of responsibility.
Reports of damaged or missing traffic signs are then sent to the Traffic Safety Division, (631) 957-3106 or the Traffic Sign Shop, (631) 957-3104. Reports should include the location of the missing or damaged sign such as the address and the cross street name and/or intersection. The Town is responsible for responding to such reports within two hours of receipt and then correcting the situation within 72 hours.
