New York State Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr. announced last week that the project to pave Sag Harbor Golf Course Road is moving forward this fall.
The roadway, just off of Route 114 in East Hampton, leads to the 48.8-acre state golf course, a nine-hole golf range. The project will be funded by a $375,000 grant secured by
Mr. Thiele in the 2018 state budget for road paving work and other necessary improvements to the gold course, located in the middle of the 341-acre Barcelona Neck Natural Resources Management Area. The Sag Harbor Golf Course Road will be repaved from State Route 114 to the Sag Harbor Golf Clubhouse.
According to Mr. Thiele, a bid opening is planned for the week of July 4, with the contract expected to be awarded in early September. Work will begin on the roadway shortly thereafter.
“I have long advocated for the paving of the Sag Harbor Golf Course Road, and am thrilled that, at long last, this essential reconstruction project is finally moving forward,” Mr. Thiele said. “I thank the State Parks Department for their efforts in advancing this important project to improve the Sag Harbor Golf Course Road surface and the safety of all those who travel it, and I am excited to see it come to fruition.”
The Sag Harbor Golf Course Road is owned by the state and is the responsibility of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation.
