The state's pavement resurfacing project along a stretch of road in East Hampton will begin as early as next week.
Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele, Jr., I-Sag Harbor, announced on Thursday that the Montauk Highway repair project, from the intersection of Stephen Hands Path east to its intersection with State Route 114, will begin soon, although the forecasted storm could push the project back further.
The road along that stretch of Route 27 will be milled, repaired where necessary, and receive an entire new layer of pavement, Thiele said in a statement. New pavement markings will also be installed.
Thiele did not mention any road closure.
The State Department of Transportation initially said the project would begin in early fall 2012. It was announced in late August.
