On the south side of Salisbury Park Drive in Levittown in a somewhat wooded strip between the street and a LIPA facility, lies remnants of the Motor Parkway that have for the most part gone unnoticed. The Motor Parkway went west across today's Wantagh Parkway towards Eisenhower Park and east towards where it went over Newbridge Road (near where the East Meadow firehouse is now). I've lived not more than a half mile away from this area for over 20 years and just within the past year understood its historical significance. Here are some pictures of pieces of original roadway and posts that lined the roadway.
2009 UPDATE:During the spring and summer of 2006, LIPA (the LI Power Authority) installed underground cables throughout much of LI, with many locations near the LIMP right of way or the actual roadway. These photos, taken in April, 2006 show a bulldozer parked very close to a LIMP post, and several posts in harms way. Who would win - machine or post? Well, on a trip back to the area in Feb., 2009 I found the original posts still there, albeit having been moved somewhat. But at least, the posts won and they remain! The fifth picture is how the area looks today, somewhat cleaner than prior to the LIPA work. This is an excellent reminder of the LIMP back in the days when it was in operation.
