As part of the ongoing Bridgehampton traffic and pedestrian-safety project, the New York State Department Of Transportation has begun construction of a new portion of sidewalk along the south side of Montauk Highway this week.
The new section of sidewalk is being installed beginning on the east side of Church Lane, extending east to connect with the existing sidewalk in this area. Portions of the existing sidewalk along this corridor will be repaired, and the new sidewalk will also be installed where gaps between existing sidewalk sections currently exist. When this phase of the project is complete, there will be uninterrupted sidewalk on the south side of Montauk Highway extending from Church Lane to School Street.
Parking along the south side of Montauk Highway in this immediate area will be restricted at times. This will be an active construction area for several weeks. During this time, both motorists and pedestrians are advised to use caution when driving or walking in this area.
