Superintendent Losquadro and Councilman LaValle Work with VFW 400 Post and SCCC to Expand Parking for Student Vets

087sm090smBrookhaven Town Highway Superintendent Daniel P. Losquadro and Councilman Kevin LaValle joined with members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Sgt. Santora/Staff Sgt. Bonacasa Memorial Post 400 to announce the completion of a recent project to install sidewalks from the VFW to the traffic signal at the entrance to the Ammerman campus of Suffolk County Community College on College Road. In addition, the Brookhaven Highway Department installed a pedestrian crossing at the signal.
“The VFW Memorial Post 400 has generously offered the use of their parking lot as an overflow lot for students from Suffolk Community College, many of them returning vets. The enhancements made along College Road, across from both the VFW and SCCC, will allow for increased pedestrian safety in the area,” said Superintendent Losquadro.
“Vehicle and pedestrian traffic is very heavy in the area around the college and the new sidewalk will make it much safer for all, especially for our student Veterans,” said Councilman LaValle. “I thank Superintendent Losquadro and the Highway Department for the work that they did to complete this project.”
“All of us at VFW Post 400 would like to thank our Councilman Kevin LaValle, Highway Superintendent Dan Losquadro and the Town of Brookhaven for this project,” said John Rago, VFW Memorial Post 400 commander. “They may think that they built a sidewalk and a crosswalk, but what they really built is a bridge that connects those Veterans who attend Suffolk County Community College with our VFW Post, where they can receive support from fellow Veterans.”
