Middle Country Road

The Coram Civic Association is sounding the alarm on the critical condition of Middle Country Road, a danger zone that has become a grave concern for all, particularly the most vulnerable among us, including women and children who traverse this treacherous path daily. Our once-dependable roadway has transformed into a menacing obstacle course of potholes and crumbling asphalt, creating a scenario fraught with peril for those who walk its sidewalks and navigate its lanes. This dilapidated state not only inflicts damage upon our vehicles, necessitating expensive repairs but also exposes pedestrians, especially our children and women, to heightened risks. They are forced to dodge these hazardous pitfalls, making every journey a harrowing ordeal that could end in tragedy.


In a recent survey conducted by our association, the people of Coram have spoken loud and clear: the condition of our roads, especially Middle Country Road, stands as a top priority and concern. This outcry underscores the urgent need for action in a situation made all the more complex by the road's designation as a state thoroughfare. Despite receiving funding for paving and maintenance projects from both New York State and the federal government, and benefiting from three consecutive years of mild winters that have spared the asphalt from the usual wear and tear of ice and salt, our roads remain in a state of neglect. This has been the disheartening reality for years, and despite the available resources, far too little has been done to rectify the situation.

Understanding the reality behind the paving projects for Middle Country Road is crucial, as their significance is only truly confirmed once we see a shovel in the ground. Time and again, our community has been caught in a cycle of postponements, with paving projects promised to us being rescheduled year after year, eroding our trust and leaving our roads in disrepair. This pattern of delays highlights the importance of our collective action to ensure that these projects do not fall by the wayside once more. To hold accountable those responsible and to prevent another year of unfulfilled promises, we urge you to proactively reach out to the offices of our elected officials listed below. Your voice is a powerful catalyst for change, and by making it heard, we can finally see the commencement of the long-overdue paving projects, transforming our words into concrete action—literally.
