Higbie Lane, Udall Road
LOCATION: West Islip STATUS: Two-to-four lane road (signed)
North Ocean Avenue, Patchogue-Mount Sinai Road
LOCATION: Patchogue to Mount Sinai STATUS: Four-lane undivided and divided highway (signed) NOTES: North Ocean Avenue (CR 83) was realigned and widened to four lanes in the late 1960's between Sunrise Highway (NY 27) and Granny Road in Medford. The remainder of the highway, Patchogue-Mount Sinai Road, was completed to Mount Sinai in 1973. One section near the Bald Hill Vietnam Veterans Memorial has a grade-separated interchange at Bicycle Path in Farmingville. According to Jim Wade, this was done because of the hilly terrain in the area. At its northern terminus, the four-lane CR 83 was to be extended northeast from NY 25A along the Echo Avenue alignment to Sound Beach. A four-lane spur (CR 83A) was also planned north of NY 25A to Cedar Beach County Park in Mount Sinai.
NOTES: According to Daniel Dey, CR 83A was to have been a four-lane spur beginning at the intersection of CR 83 and NY 25A in Mount Sinai. The CR 83A "Cedar Beach Spur" was to have continued northwest along an alignment parallel to Pipe Stave Hollow Road, ending at Cedar Beach Town Park. Much of the area that would have been used for CR 83A is now developed.

Union Avenue, Long Island Avenue
LOCATION: Lake Ronkonkoma to Yaphank STATUS: Two-lane road (unsigned) NOTES: Much of this route is maintained by the Town of Brookhaven. In 1970, Suffolk County planned a four-lane, divided CR 90 from the intersection of NY 110 and NY 24 in Farmingdale to NY 112 in Medford. Although fiscal concerns doomed the original CR 90 plan, a scaled-down plan, the four-lane Suffolk Avenue (CR 100) was reconstructed in 1980. This CR 90 designation appeared on Union Avenue and Long Island Avenue on maps from the early 1970's to the mid-1980's. Around this time, maps showed a proposed CR 90 along the LIRR main line from William Floyd Parkway (CR 46) east to Wading River Road (CR 25).
NOTES: In the 1950's, CR 91 was to be built along an abandoned LIRR spur connecting Manorville and Eastport. Even though its function was made redundant by the construction of CR 111 nearby, the CR 91 "Manorville Branch Road" remained on county plans until 1988, when it was made part of a Pine Barrens natural preserve.

LOCATION: Calverton to Riverhead STATUS: Four-lane divided highway NOTES: Although this route is dually signed with the eastern section of NY 24, Nugent Drive is maintained by Suffolk County. In the 1970's and 1980's, there were plans to extend CR 94 north to Sound Avenue in Baiting Hollow.

LOCATION: Holtsville to Yaphank STATUS: Four-lane divided highway (signed) NOTES: Before the 1970's, Woodside Avenue was a two-lane town road that began just west of North Ocean Avenue, and ended at Station Road Construction began on widening Woodside Avenue in the early 1970's. Woodside Avenue was extended west to Patchogue-Holbrook Road (CR 19), and two grade-separated interchanges (at Waverly Avenue-CR 61) and Buckley Road were constructed to serve the the IRS Holtsville Service Center. To the east, CR 99 was extended to Horse Block Road (CR 16). The entire CR 99 project was completed in 1975. According to Daniel Dey, there was a 1975 map showing proposed CR 99 extensions west to NY 454 (Veterans Memorial Highway) in Holbrook, and east to CR 21 (Yaphank Avenue) in Yaphank. At its western terminus in Holtsville, there is even a stub hinting toward a possible westward extension. (In the 1960's, the CR 99 designation applied to Great Neck Road, the current CR 47.)
LOCATION: Brentwood to Islandia STATUS: Two-lane road from CR 13 to CR 17, four-lane divided highway from CR 17 to NY 454 (signed throughout entire length of road) NOTES: In 1970, Suffolk County planned a four-lane, divided CR 90 from the intersection of NY 110 and NY 24 in Farmingdale to NY 112 in Medford. Although fiscal concerns doomed the original CR 90 plan, a scaled-down plan for Suffolk Avenue (CR 100) was reconstructed in 1980. Prior to reconstruction, Suffolk Avenue was a two-lane road maintained by the Town of Islip. (The CR 100 designation was originally assigned to Mill Road and Beach Lane -- part of the current CR 71 -- in the 1960's and early 1970's.)
