West Shore Rd closed till Monday afternoon (estimated)

Dear Residents and Commuters-- Please be aware that West Shore Rd (the roadway by Bar Beach) is closed in both directions due an accident that took down three large poles. The Nassau County Police Department estimates that it will be closed through tomorrow afternoon (around 5pm-8pm). This is an estimate only and we don’t know if it will be open for evening rush hour. We have been unable to ascertain whether access to Harbor Park Drive, which is the general vicinity of the closure, will need to be accessed from the South or from the North. People need to travel north of the closure will need to use Port Washington Blvd to Beacon Hill Rd and then back to West Shore Rd. Reportedly, wind conditions have been hampering restoration. If additional becomes available, we will advise by email only. Peter Forman, Commissioner Port Washington-Manhasset Office of Emergency Management NorthShoreAlert.org and pwmoem.org
