The East Hampton Chamber of Commerce will receive a $37,000 grant from the Suffolk County Legislature to be used for the construction of an illuminated crosswalk on Newtown Lane in East Hampton Village. The village will provide 50 percent of the cost in matching funds.
As with the two lighted crosswalks on Main Street, the new crosswalk will improve visibility for and of pedestrians. It will be installed at the site of an existing crosswalk on Newtown Lane approximately 500 feet north of Main Street.
Representative Tim Bishop joined representatives from the Committee to Restore and Preserve the Amagansett U.S. Life Saving and Coast Guard Station in thanking the United States Merchant Marine Academy for its donation of a wooden lifeboat.
