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:

    The route through childhood is shaped by many forces, and it differs for each of us. Our biological inheritance, the temperament with which we are born, the care we receive, our family relationships, the place where we grow up, the schools we attend, the culture in which we participate, and the historical period in which we live—all these affect the paths we take through childhood and condition the remainder of our lives.
    Robert H. Wozniak (20th century)

    Don’t you know there are 200 temperance women in this county who control 200 votes. Why does a woman work for temperance? Because she’s tired of liftin’ that besotted mate of hers off the floor every Saturday night and puttin’ him on the sofa so he won’t catch cold. Tonight we’re for temperance. Help yourself to them cloves and chew them, chew them hard. We’re goin’ to that festival tonight smelling like a hot mince pie.
    Laurence Stallings (1894–1968)
