Representatives of the Long Island Power Authority will present details this evening in a meeting about a project to replace existing utility poles to allow for an upgraded electrical transmission line between East Hampton Village and Amagansett. The session will take place in an open-house format at the East Hampton Village Emergency Services Building on Cedar Street from 6 to 8 p.m. The public has been invited.
Rebecca Molinaro, the East Hampton Village administrator, issued a notice yesterday about the meeting that said the new lines and poles would be able to withstand winds of 130 miles per hour. Work is to take place between the utility’s Cove Hollow Road, East Hampton, substation and a substation on Old Stone Highway, Amagansett, adjacent to the Long Island Rail Road station.
