City Island Legion Triangle construction underway

Posted: Updated:
CITY ISLAND -

Construction of the City Island Legion Triangle is underway.

The reconstructed triangle will be adjacent to the new City Island Bridge.

The new island will be larger to better present the monuments and flagpole to the community and to accommodate additional visitors, especially during veteran related events, according to the Department of Transportation.

Neighbors say they are excited for the redesigned feature.

"There won't be people trying to cut across that divider and whip around it because there will be a structure there, so I think it's a good thing," Marty Martinez says.

Officials did not say when the island was expected to be complete.
