Eastbound Views (Archived)

There were once very small green signs, visible but too small to read in these pictures, in advance of major intersections on Sunrise Highway in Valley Stream and Lynbrook. They have been replaced with larger signs that are easier to read.

These pictures show the eastern end on Sunrise Highway at it appeared before the widening of North Road (CR 39) in 2008. At the time, the NY 27/CR 39 section had only one eastbound lane, which was formed from the two lanes of Sunrise Highway merging with another lane from North Road. This was known as the Shinnecock Squeeze and was the site of notorious traffic jams during the summer months.

These pictures show the section of NY 27 along North Road (CR 39) and Flying Point Road (CR 39) in the area north of Southampton as it appeared prior to the widening. At the time, there was only a single eastbound lane, leading to major traffic problems. The signs showing CR 38 extending to the south were an error that was corrected at the time of the widening. The section of North Sea Road south of North Road was always a local street.
