Be alert! Drive safely!
Be alert! Drive safely!
Pernicious Potholes Be Gone!

Today the New York State Department of Transportation began resurfacing the 8.2 miles of deeply potholed and ravaged tarmac along State Route 27, also known as Montauk Highway, between Southampton and East Hampton.

The NYS DOT expects delays to be minimized by shifting travel lanes rather than closing shorter sections of the road. In addition, construction will only take place during off-peak hours and will be suspended between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Travel lane shifts will be in effect Monday through Friday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. starting Thursday and between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. starting April 1. On-street parking will be prohibited during construction

According to Newsday the construction will cost $7.6 million and begin at the intersection of County Road 39 in Southampton and move east to the intersection with Stephen Hands Path in East Hampton.

The finished road construction will include important new safety features such as a clearly marked bicycle lane and pedestrian crosswalks.

ABOUT TIME! TEN YEARS BEHIND WHEN IT WAS NEEDED! IT WON'T LAST BECAUSE THEY DON'T REMOVE ORIGINAL CEMENT ROAD! SHOLDERS (NOW TRAVEL LANES) ARE OIL AND SAG FASTER THAN CEMENT!

Removing the underlying concrete would double the cost. If they mill out a minimum of two inches of existing asphalt and replace with two inches of NYS superpave mix it should last about eight years.

Eight years, oh good. The concrete has been there for 100!!!!!
