EHV construction to take three weeks

Train Trestle Traffic




If you thought the end of summer heralded the end of traffic in East Hampton Village, think again.

The Long Island Rail Road has updated its local road closures, reporting that there will be multiple days where certain roads will not be passable due to continuing work on the Trestle Replacement Project.

The first closure begins on Wednesday, September 25, and it’s North Main Street and then Accabonac Road. Closures will run from approximately 7 AM to 5 PM.

According to the website A Modern LI, “The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2019 and the estimated cost is $21 million. Bridge removal and replacement for both bridges will take approximately 23 days and road detours will be in effect.”
