County begins repairs on Corona Avenue
(Page 2 of 2)
Karen Kiefel shared a similar sentiment about doing the project during the school year. “Yes, the road definitely needed repair, but it makes no sense to me that they are doing it now,” she said. “This should have been done in the summer when there was no school. What a nightmare.”
Martino said that roads in Nassau County get fixed on a rotating schedule. “Eventually all roads get resurfaced,” he said. Martino added that the project is part of a much larger capital project and the work on Corona Avenue would cost less than $400,000.
Both the James A. Dever School and the District 13 administrative offices are located on Corona Avenue. Superintendent Dr. Adrienne Robb-Fund said the construction crews have been very accommodating by stopping construction at dismissal and arrival to make it easier for parents and students. “They’ve been very sensitive to the needs of the district,” she said. Also, she added, the noise is only a factor for a small portion of the day and doesn’t really impact the classes.
