    Nicholls Road will be transformed into a multimodal corridor with Bus Rapid Tranist (BRT) and extensive hiking & biking network

    The Nicholls Road BRT plan is to construct an HOV lane along the length of Nicholls road. The primary purpose of this lane would be to facilitate express bus service and thus alleviate some of the high volume of traffic. The HOV lane would have the same regulations governing it as the present LIE HOV lane.

    The bike portion of the plan is as follows:

    A north south bicycle corridor would be created paralleling Nicholls road. The corridor would be constructed along the existing power lines and would have a connection to the Setauket Greenway at the North end. The funding for the corridor construction is possible only if interest is shown.  If completed the trail would link the Northwest portions of the proposed LI empire trail extension.
