This photo of the ongoing construction of Phase 2 of the Setauket to Port Jefferson Greenway Trail was taken by Nick Koridis, a member of the Friends of the Greenway. It shows a view of looking east towards Port Jefferson Station from the sand pits. Charlie McAteer, chairman of Friends of the Greenway, said "the undercourse of blacktop has been installed along with some trees and plantings along the path." The completed trail, expected later this year, will be 3-1/2 miles long connecting Setauket and Port Jefferson Station; Phase 2 will cost $5 million in federal transportation funds and the work is being completed by the New York State Department of Transportation and East Setauket-based Bove Industries.
