County Executive tours completed Repaving project of Montauk Highway and Sidewalk Restoration in Hampton Bays

Just in time for the summer season, the long awaited Montauk Highway repaving and sidewalk restoration project through Hampton Bays is now complete. At a News Conference Monday, June 6th, 12:30 pm on Main Street in Hampton Bays, Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman was joined by Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone and community and business leaders to recognize the completion. “This was a project that I was involved with as a County Legislator,” said Supervisor Jay Scheiderman, “and I am happy as Town Supervisor to see that it is completed. This is just one of many steps we are taking to help revitalize the downtown area of Hampton Bays. For example, just behind us, the construction of Good Ground Park is underway.”

The Suffolk County Department of Public Works made improvements on CR 80, also known as Montauk Highway, from NYS Rte 24 to Bittersweet Dr. The improvements included: milling and resurfacing the roadway, new pavement markings, drainage repair and improvement, repair of sidewalks and upgrades to meet ADA and rebuilding of traffic signals, including adding a new left turn arrow at Ponquogue Avenue. The contractor was Rosemar Contracting Inc. with main offices in Patchogue. The total cost of the project was $1.77 million, including State funding. The project began in September of 2015 and was substantially complete by May 2016.

“This is just the start of revitalizing Hampton Bays,” said Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone. “We know it may just look like an upgrade, but we know it goes deeper than that. This newly repaved road will lead to the rebirth of this area, and downtown Hampton Bays will become more pedestrian friendly with additional sidewalks that welcome foot traffic. More residents and visitors will want to shop in the downtown area and take a stroll to the new park. I look forward to coming back here when this park opens and celebrating with all of you.”

Suffolk County Legislator Bridget Fleming was a member of the former Town Board which worked hard to see the project completed. “I am delighted to have the opportunity to recognize this repaving and sidewalk project as another step toward the economic revitalization of Hampton Bays and the continued commitment of the County to work closely with Southampton Town on this critically important goal.”
