Why does it take so long to get my road paved?
Every year, all 472 miles of town roads are inspected. Roads are not scheduled for repaving based solely on age. The Road Improvement Program is drawn up annually based upon actual need, not age. Type of traffic, traffic volume, and weather all take a toll on the roads, and often times it becomes necessary to maintain some roads more often than others. When we consider roads for repaving, we also must consider the curbs, sidewalks and drainage. Last but not at all least, decisions must be within the monies that are allotted for work based on the costs of asphalt, concrete, and other materials.
Submit a request for your road to be inspected and for it to be considered for the 2015 Road Program by contacting the Smithtown Highway Department Here
