Suffolk County Roads 101-117

Patchogue-Yaphank Road (Sills Road)

LOCATION: East Patchogue to Yaphank
STATUS: Four-lane divided highway (signed)
NOTES: Until the early 1970's, Sills Road was an unsigned, two-lane local road. Between 1974 and 1978, CR 101, re-christened Patchogue-Yaphank Road (but alternatively signed as Sills Road), was reconstructed as a four-lane divided highway. Maps from the late 1970's and early 1980's showed a proposed extension of CR 101 to the William Floyd Parkway (CR 46), near the area of Longwood Road in Yaphank.

UNBUILT

NOTES: According to the 1982 Hagstrom Long Island Atlas, CR 102 was to have been a four-lane divided highway along the north side of the Long Island Expressway (I-495) between EXIT 66 and EXIT 68. It was to have served the Suffolk Meadows Race Track, the unbuilt Grant Park Mall and new residential development. Because of its location at the western end of the Pine Barrens, the four-lane CR 102 soon became one of the "unbuilt." (The 1998 Hagstrom Suffolk County Atlas shows East Main Street in Yaphank, near the location of the unbuilt highway, as CR 102. However, the Suffolk County Planning Department has no current record of CR 102.

UNBUILT

NOTES: According to the 1982 Hagstrom Long Island Atlas, CR 103 was to have been a four-lane divided highway like CR 105, but was to cross the Peconic River west of downtown Riverhead. The northern terminus of CR 103 ("Cross River Drive West") was to have been at the intersection of CR 58 (Old Country Road) and Osborn Avenue, while the southern terminus have to have been at the intersection of CR 51 and CR 63, just south of the Riverhead County Center. Since the southern half of this four-lane road was to have been in the Pine Barrens, this road also met an untimely death.

Quogue-Riverhead Road, Riverleigh Avenue

LOCATION: Quogue to Riverhead
STATUS: Two-lane road (signed)
NOTES: Until 1972, CR 104 was signed as NY 113 from Riverhead to Quogue. Some evidence of the old NY 113 remains, in the form of NYSDOT-issue signs and the LIRR underpass in Quogue. (The NY 113 designation on this road had existed since at least 1940.)

Cross River Drive

LOCATION: Riverhead to Northville
STATUS: Four-lane divided highway (signed)
NOTES: This highway, part of Suffolk County's road-building boom of the early 1970's, is the easternmost crossing of the Peconic River. It is also among the more sparsely-traveled four-lane routes in Suffolk County. Under construction as of 1973, CR 105 was completed in 1975. According to the 1982 Hagstrom Long Island Atlas, an extension of CR 105 was proposed west to CR 111, near the intersection of CR 55 (Eastport Manor Road). Since the extension was to have been constructed through the Pine Barrens, this section of CR 105 went "unbuilt."

Campus Road

LOCATION: Brentwood
STATUS: Four-lane divided highway (unsigned)
NOTES: The current CR 106, which serves the Brentwood campus of Suffolk County Community College, received its designation around 1980. In the 1960's and early 1970's, the CR 106 designation was given to Bread and Cheese Hollow Road (now part of CR 4).

Belmont Avenue

LOCATION: West Babylon to North Babylon
STATUS: Two-lane road (unsigned)
NOTES: This route is maintained by the Town of Babylon. (Possibly, CR 107 may continue north through North Babylon, along Essex Street and Mount Avenue, to CR 2-Straight Path in Wyandanch.) According to Daniel Dey, the CR 107 designation was originally reserved for the West Babylon-Centerport Highway, a four-lane arterial highway from NY 27A in West Babylon to NY 25A in Centerport.

Caleb's Path, Old Willets Path

LOCATION: Central Islip to Smithtown
STATUS: Two-lane road (unsigned)
NOTES: According to Daniel Dey, there was to have been a northern extension of CR 108 between Smithtown and East Northport. This would have been done along the alignments of Plymouth Boulevard and Old Northport Road.

UNASSIGNED

NOTES: The CR 109 designation has never been assigned in either Suffolk or Nassau counties.

UNBUILT

NOTES: In the late 1960's, a four-lane limited-access highway, the A.O. Smith Turnpike, was proposed from CR 97 (Nicolls Road) in Centereach to NY 25A in Port Jefferson. The right-of-way for the proposed CR 110 was to run parallel to the LIPA power lines that traverse the Setauket Pine Barrens. Ultimately, the northern terminus of the CR 110 expressway was to lead into the Port Jefferson-Bridgeport Bridge. When the bridge proposal died, the CR 110 expressway proposal went with it. Another CR 110 proposal appeared in the early 1980's for the same route, this time as a scaled-down four-lane arterial highway with at-grade access. Both CR 110 proposals never made it past the planning stages.

Port Jefferson-Westhampton Road (Captain Daniel Roe Highway)

LOCATION: Manorville to Eastport
STATUS: Four-lane divided highway (signed)
NOTES: It doesn't go to Port Jeffferson, and it doesn't go to Westhampton. Proposed in the road-building heydey of the 1960's, CR 111 was undoubtedly the most controversial county road built (or unbuilt). The Eastport-Manorville segment, the only portion of CR 111 to be constructed, was completed in 1975. (In the years hence, CR 111 has proven to be an indispensible route for those going to the Hamptons.) Originally, CR 111 was to have begun at the intersection of NY 25A and NY 347 in Mount Sinai. It was to have followed Canal Road and Whiskey Road through Mount Sinai, Middle Island and Ridge before going through Brookhaven National Laboratory and Peconic River County Park. At the southern end, CR 111 was to have been extension south to NY 27A-CR 80 in Westhampton, partially along the route of CR 71 (Old Country Road). The southern extension to Westhampton was killed in the late 1970's, but plans for the northern extension were kept alive through the 1980's. A bill to designate the right-of-way for CR 111 as part of the Suffolk County Pine Barrens was enacted into law in 1988, prohibiting further construction.

Johnson Avenue

LOCATION: Sayville to Bohemia
STATUS: Four-lane undivided road (unsigned)
NOTES: CR 112 continues north of NY 454 to the main entrance of Long Island MacArthur Airport.

Stephen Hands Path

LOCATION: Wainscott to East Hampton
STATUS: Two-lane road (unsigned)
NOTES: This route is maintained by the Town of East Hampton.

UNASSIGNED

NOTES: Perhaps to avoid confusion with NY 114, the CR 114 designation has never been assigned in Suffolk County.

West Neck Road

LOCATION: Shelter Island
STATUS: Two-lane road (signed)
NOTES: The CR 115 designation first appeared in 1998. Until the late 1980's, West Neck Road was designated CR 28. (Today, CR 28 is New Highway in the Town of Babylon.)

Menantic Road, Smith Street

LOCATION: Shelter Island
STATUS: Two-lane road (signed)
NOTES: The CR 116 designation first appeared in 1998. Until the late 1980's, Menantic Road and Smith Street were designated CR 29. (Today, CR 29 is Ronkonkoma Avenue and Smithtown Avenue in Ronkonkoma.)

Burns Road

LOCATION: Shelter Island
STATUS: Two-lane road (signed)
NOTES: The CR 117 designation first appeared in 1998. Until the late 1980's, Burns Road was designated CR 30. (Today, CR 30 is East Lake Drive in Montauk.)
