Deadly Roslyn Heights Intersection Gets Added Safety Features

A busy and deadly Roslyn Heights, Long Island intersection has received added safety measures by officials from Nassau County and North Hempstead Town following a fatal crash that occurred nearby.
Last month, two Roslyn teens were killed while traveling north on Roslyn Road. They crashed into a backyard past where the road crosses Locust Lane. The day before the crash, officials had discussed safety issues in the area. The family that lives on the property where the crash occurred had complained that drivers heading north on Roslyn Road become confused when they approach the area where the county road veers east onto town-run Locust Lane.
This wasn’t the first incident where cars had landed on the front and side of the family’s property. In one instance, another vehicle totaled the family’s car.
Nine hours after the meeting had ended, the teens crashes into the background. Officials then said they would step up the safety measures at that intersection.
The county added pavement marking and speed signs, increased speed detections, and a guardrail to partially cover the part of the house on Locust Lane.
Other initiatives such as removing the veer-off lane and adding a full traffic light where Roslyn Road meets Locust Lane have been discussed.
