across New York's Long Island Sound
connecting I-287 with Route 135
Suggested Tunnel Configuration for I-287 Cross Sound Tunnel connecting Westchester County and Long Island, N.Y.
This would connect existing I-287 with Route 135 in Long Island.
It would be drilled over 100 feet beneath the underwater surface.
Is being proposed by Polimeri International, a family owned Garden City, LI based development company.
It would be built with private funds, and charge a toll of $25 for passenger automobiles and an upwards of $100 for trucks.
It would be a useful evacuation route- a concept that the government has paid lip service.
N.Y. State Senator Carl Marcellino (R- Syosset) has announced hearings to be held on this proposal.
