In May, JB DosSantos, co-chair of the CAC, sent a letter to East Hampton Town Supervisor Bill Wilkinson and members of town board asking them to consider a roundabout at the fork separating the two roads in the hopes that traffic would be able to flow more smoothly.
Members also asked for a comprehensive traffic study done to be done on North Main Street, including Three Mile Harbor Road, Springs Fireplace Road, Jackson Avenue, Indian Hill Road, and Miller Lanes, East and West.
"While the Town and Village did make improvements to the area, the [North Main Street Corridor] Study recommendations that were acted upon were beautification projects only, and that the traffic pattern engineering was not addressed at that time," DosSantos said.
The roads are county-owned roads.
William Hillman, the principal engineer with the Suffolk County Department of Public Works, and Daniel Dresch with the Division of Traffic Engineering Suffolk County Department of Public Works, are expected to attend the meeting, as are representatives from Legis. Jay Schneiderman's office.
Schneiderman, I-Montauk, will be taking part in a political event nearby at the Emergency Services Building in East Hampton, where the League of Women Voters is holding a debate at the same time.
The CAC meeting will be held at Town Hall at 7 p.m.
