Noyac Road Scoping Session Cancelled Today

Aug 31, 2011 11:09 AM

A public vetting of the Southampton Town Highway Department’s plans to calm traffic at a dangerous intersection on Noyac Road, which was scheduled for Wednesday at the Noyac Community House, has been canceled by Superintendent Alex Gregor because the venue does not have power.

Mr. Gregor said he learned late on Tuesday afternoon from town officials that the Noyac Community House on Noyac Road lost power due to strong winds from Hurricane Irene last weekend. He said he would postpone the meeting, which was scheduled for 1:30 to 4 p.m., to another date to be determined later.

“There’s no power at the Noyac Community House, and the wires got knocked off the building and there was some damage in the roof,” Mr. Gregor said on Tuesday.

The meeting was scheduled to get the public’s input on the town’s design for the troublesome intersection near Cromer’s Market. The plan would involve realigning Noyac Road and creating left turning lanes and a median to help alleviate the traffic situation.

“I think safety dictates that we reschedule,” Mr. Gregor said.

A median in the road is not going to slow the cars down, hang out by North Haven village, it doesn't slow any one down. Hopefully the Heines will stick to their guns and not sell or give it ...more

Why not just lower the speed limit to 30
