Looking at some homes on Joline Road in Port Jefferson (connects with 112). I see that this road has a double yellow line and I do not care to live on a main road which is what a double yellow line usually signifies. So does anyone know since this road only connects with 112 and is not a real thoroughfare (like Bicycle Path is), is it really that busy where it requires a double yellow line? Does traffic fly though there?

That's Port Jeff Station. the road doesn't connect thru to another main road, so since it only services the residential area it shouldn't be too bad.

Best thing to do is to go and see the house(s) you're interested in and take note of the traffic while you're there. Probably will be the busiest during commuting times..

Many realtor sites give the addresses (such as zip realty) - I've been finding the address and then going to :
Maps and Directions - YELLOWPAGES.COM
to see where the house is. This site also has a feature to see the house from a bird's eye view (plus you can rotate it). This is really great to get a better feel for the property.

Thanks. I'm going to check out the area.

And thanks for that site.

Strange, all these satellite images don't show many cars on it. This is Long Island. Did they remove some of the cars from the pictures? :P

It's a cut through for local homeowners looking to avoid Jayne and 112.

Yes, all of the above is true- I lived on this road and it is indeed a cut through and even people who live in the neighborhood tend to drive pretty fast

Also consider how difficult it is to make any turns onto 112- going either direction- from Joline.

Good luck
