Press Release

Patchogue, NY –Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, C – Shirley), member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, sent a letter today to Colonel David A. Caldwell at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers outlining specific local priorities requested to be included in the final draft of the General Reevaluation Report (GRR). The GRR will determine which projects are to be included in the remainder of the Fire Island to Montauk Point Project (FIMP).

“Superstorm Sandy devastated our coastal communities and businesses on Long Island,” said Congressman Zeldin. “The threat of a tropical storm this week was another reminder of how important it is to quickly move forward with these projects to ensure that we as a community are best prepared for the future. All projects listed within this letter are critical for our community and should be included in the final draft of the GRR.”
