Southampton Paving Project

A three-mile portion of Montauk Highway, from Knoll Road in Shinnecock Hills east to Tuckahoe Lane in Southampton, will soon be repaved. 

The New York State Department of Transportation will resurface that portion of the state highway after having designated it a priority project, according to Stephen Canzoneri, a spokesman for the D.O.T. “A contract is expected to be awarded in the coming weeks, with resurfacing to take place during the 2018 construction season. Further details will be released to the public and local officials closer to the physical start date of the roadwork,” he said. 

Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr. announced the project, saying he was glad that infrastructure on the East End was getting attention. “In the past few years, we have seen Route 27 from Southampton to Montauk repaved, as well as Route 24 between Flanders and Hampton Bays, and a portion of Route 114 in East Hampton,” he said.  

A new traffic circle will be constructed this fall in East Hampton Village at Toilsome Lane and Route 114. Businesses or residents with concerns about the Southampton project before it begins have been asked to contact Mr. Thiele’s office.
