Depends on strength. Some low profile events are there all the time. Albany area saw 3 local noticable events in past 100 years, and a few more remote were felt.

NYSDOT MO was shaken by one about ten years ago.  A few employees ran outside.

I had that one in mind when I said "non-local"

roadman65:
Why does the Meadowbrook Parkway have inconsistent use of overheads?
https://goo.gl/maps/EESSdGaqwn18cnhp6

In this photo at Exit M9 W NB it has one installed.
Yet at NB Exit M9E there is none.

The latter is part of a cloverleaf, and should get overheads, but donít.


Also if trucks are not allowed on the Meadowbrook why are there signs stating that they, buses, and trailers need to depart the roadway?

SignBridge:
The reason there is an overhead in the first photo is because they needed a sign gantry anyway re: the advance sign for the next exit. There is no overhead in the second photo because it seems to be NYS DOT Region 10's policy not to use overheads at the first exit of a two exit cloverleaf interchange on the Long Island Parkways.

It appears to be their philosophy that a slightly lower level of signing is acceptable on the Parkways because there is no heavy truck and bus traffic.

Although commercial trucks are prohibited on the L.I. Parkways, there is an exception for the Meadowbrook and Wantagh Pkwy's south of Merrick Rd. to allow deliveries of food, merchandise etc. to Jones Beach. Ditto for passenger busses transporting beachgoers to/from Long Island Railroad Stations on the mainland to/from Jones Beach.

There is some seriously deficient signing further north on the Meadowbrook Pkwy northbound at Exits M6W and M6E, the Southern State Pkwy.  At that interchange there is a right exit and a left/lane-drop exit.
