DOT Will Pave At Night


The New York State Department of Transportation will continue to pave the Amagansett Shopping District during nighttime hours, Supervisor Larry Cantwell and Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr. announced today.

According to a release from the assemblyman’s office, the DOT announced a few weeks ago it might repave a 1,500-foot section of Montauk Highway in Amagansett during off-peak hours rather than at night, as originally planned.

This news caused Amagansett business owners to contact Mr. Cantwell and Mr. Thiele, fearing the daytime off-peak paving might negatively affect their businesses.

In response to their concerns, Mr. Cantwell and Mr. Thiele approached the regional director of the DOT, asking that roadwork in Amangansett be done at night, like the repaving of Montauk Highway in downtown Bridgehampton and Water Mill shopping areas earlier this year.
