TRAFFIC ON THE ISLAND ONE CONCERN FOR GOODWILL GAMES
Published July 16, 1998
While Nassau County officials look forward to hosting the Goodwill Games starting on Saturday, "one potential nightmare hovers over their vision like a nagging summer cold: Traffic." Officials hope that more than 12% of those attending the games will take public transportation and there are plans to use up to 70 buses, "depending on demand, to routinely shuttle thousands of people from the train stations and parking lots to the sporting events" (Monte Young, NEWSDAY, 7/17). Today's N.Y. POST features a 16-page special advertising section on the Goodwill Games (7/16).
