If you frequently use the Montauk main municipal parking lot on the north side of Main Street between Carl Fisher Plaza, and Edgemere and South Edison streets, and often leave your vehicle overnight, be prepared to find an alternate place to park for a couple of days. The head of the East Hampton Town Highway Department, Steve Lynch, will be leading a total redo of the lot, which is filled with numerous cracks and patched over potholes, before the end of the month.
East Hampton Town Supervisor Peter Van Scoyoc discussed the project at the East Hampton Town Board work session meeting October 8. The project will cost $86,650, he said.
A date had not been set as of press time, but signs have been posted in the lot warning that the project will take place by October 31. Businesses will be notified in advance, the supervisor said, particularly those with concrete pads abutting the lot.
