APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT, ENGINEERING, DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT FOR THE GEOGRAPHIC AREA OF THE HAMLETS OF MASSAPEQUA AND EAST MASSAPEQUA, AND THE VILLAGE OF MASSAPEQUA PARK, NASSAU COUNTY, AS DEFINED IN THE NY RISING COMMUNITY RECONSTRUCTION (NYRCR) PLAN, CDBG-DR MASSAPEQUAS
RETROFIT OF EXISTING STREETLIGHTS TO LED WITH SOLAR POWER AND BATTERY BACKUP
This is a project funded by and conceived through the NY Rising Community Reconstruction Program of the Governors Office of Storm Recovery.
The Town of Oyster Bay is proposing to design and construct upgrades to street lights that are located in priority locations along Merrick Road, Sunrise Highway, and additional streets that are critical for safe and secure passage during and after future storm events in the community. Upgrades to streetlights include retrofitting streetlights with solar power and backup battery storage, and conversions to LEDs with solar power and back up battery storage.
During Superstorm Sandy, residents needed clear routes for evacuation. Downed trees knocked over utility poles and wires, rendering street light and signals inoperative. Members of the Community reported that in some neighborhoods, the power was not restored for weeks after Superstorm Sandy resulting in some areas feeling deserted and unsafe at night. Floodwaters and debris from the strong winds caused road blockages.
To maintain functionality during power outages, streetlights will be upgraded to LED lightbulbs with solar power and backup power capabilities; street lights which are previously furnished with LED bulbs will be retrofitted to operate on solar power with battery backup power. This would make it safe for residents to evacuate during power outages whether by car or on foot, and improve security. Lighting during the night would also allow for first responders to clear roads quicker for residents and other first responders to provide lifesaving services. Backup batteries for these units can typically store enough energy to function for three days.
A mandatory pre-proposal meeting will be held on Thursday, October 12, 2017, at 9:30am at Town of Oyster Bay Town Hall South, 977 Hicksville Road, Massapequa, New York 11758.
