Roadwork Ahead at Shinnecock Canal

Daytime drivers approaching the Shinnecock Canal in Hampton Bays may experience delays beginning Thursday and continuing for about a week.

The New York State Department of Transportation advised drivers to expect lane closures for resurfacing between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

The work zone will extend about 1,000 feet in both directions from the Shinnecock Canal bridge. During the project, the old pavement will be removed and a new two-inch-thick layer of new blacktop laid down.
