Repairs To Historic Sands Point Bridge Are Completed

Nassau County Legislature Minority Leader Delia DeRiggi-Whitton (D–Glen Cove) is pleased to announce the completion of major capital improvements and repairs to the historic Sands Point Bridge. Completion of this project marks the culmination of years of advocacy by Minority Leader DeRiggi-Whitton for repairs to the main entry point to the Sands Point Preserve.

The $2.4-million infrastructure project included rehab work along the length of the bridge and its approaches; cleaning of the historic stone fascia arches and retaining walls; improvements to the stone masonry; repairs to the damaged stone parapets the architectural trim; and roadway rehabilitation including excavation of the roadway, replacement of the sub-grades and asphalt riding surface; and upgrades to the drainage system.

“This historic bridge is an essential access point to the Sands Point Preserve—one of Nassau County’s true gems in its portfolio of parks and open space,” Minority Leader DeRiggi-Whitton said. “I am thrilled that years of collaborative work with the Sands Point Preserve Conservancy and the County has brought this infrastructure project to a successful conclusion for the residents of Sands Point and our entire region.”
