Location: North Lindenhurst–Melville
Length: 5.4 mi (8.7 km)

County Route 28 is a north-south road in southwestern Suffolk County called New Highway. It is a four-lane undivided highway between NY 27 and the interchange with Southern State Parkway where it narrows down to two lanes.

Route description

The road begins at NY 27 just west of the intersection of CR 3 (Straight Path), and an Educational Bus Transport garage for school buses and intercity buses of Suffolk County Transit. This section of the road then curves towards the old section which runs along Trinity Cemetery, the site of the former Zahn's Airport, and behind the Sisters of St. Dominic Motherhouse Complex, which was previously known as the Queen of the Rosary Academy. After bi-secting Albany Avenue, the road approaches an at-grade crossing of the Central Branch of the Long Island Rail Road and immediately intersects NY 109.

North of NY 109, CR 28 runs along the western edge of the Cemetery zone of Southwestern Suffolk County. Mount Ararat Cemetery is on the opposite side of the Southern State Parkway interchanges with both NY 109 and CR 28. At the Southern State interchange, the road narrows down from a four-lane undivided highway to two lanes and the east side of the road contains the Roman Catholic Church Diocese of Brooklyn Cemetery from Southern State Parkway to the Main Line of the LIRR, and also winds around a runway and the grounds of Republic Airport on the west side. After crossing the LIRR Main Line CR 28 runs along the western border of Pinelawn Cemetery.

When CR 28 leaves the cemetery zone, it enters an industrial area which ends before terminating at CR 5 (Ruland Road) in Melville. However, just to the east of this terminus is a de facto extension called Maxess Road, which leads to the eastbound service road of the Long Island Expressway between NY 110 and CR 3 (Pinelawn Road).

Famous quotes containing the words route and/or county:

    A route differs from a road not only because it is solely intended for vehicles, but also because it is merely a line that connects one point with another. A route has no meaning in itself; its meaning derives entirely from the two points that it connects. A road is a tribute to space. Every stretch of road has meaning in itself and invites us to stop. A route is the triumphant devaluation of space, which thanks to it has been reduced to a mere obstacle to human movement and a waste of time.
    Milan Kundera (b. 1929)

    Hold hard, my county darlings, for a hawk descends,
    Golden Glamorgan straightens, to the falling birds.
    Your sport is summer as the spring runs angrily.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
