Hill Street To Be Repaved This Week

Over the next week, Hill Street in Southampton Village will be receiving a blacktop makeover.

Beginning September 30, motorists can expect delays all along Hill Street, which spans from Little Beach Road to Jobs Lane. The repaving project, for which the village will pay around $400,000, will be under way weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Thursday, October 8, weather permitting.

According to Gary J. Goleski, Southampton Village’s superintendent of public works, Hill Street will never be completely closed, but there could be some lane closures throughout the duration of the work.

Mr. Goleski said that this week workers will mill parts of the road, which consists of grinding up the existing asphalt, and that will create grooves in some portions of the street. The actual paving will take place Monday and Tuesday of next week.

To ensure that the work does not interfere with the morning and late-afternoon commutes, it will start on the westbound side of the road in the morning and continue on the eastbound side later in the day. Mr. Goleski noted that at some points, however, there may only be one lane open on Hill Street, in which case traffic will be directed accordingly.

Mr. Goleski said there will be other repaving jobs throughout the village in the near future, although he was not ready to disclose a list just yet. He added that the work on Hill Street was discussed for about two years and became a top priority this year, but village officials wanted to wait until after Labor Day before getting started. “We wanted to make sure we got through all of our festivals in the summer, and now seemed like the best time before the temperatures get too cold,” he said.

Water Main Replaced

The Suffolk County Water Authority has been working to replace more than 4,000 feet of water main on two streets in Southampton Village.

The two-week-long project, slated to finish by the end of this week, replaces an old and undersized main with ductile iron pipes measuring 12, 8 and 6 inches in diameter. According to a press release from a public relations firm that works with the water authority, the larger pipes will not only make it easier to fight fires by improving water pressure, but they will also help prevent water main breaks.

The project replaces a 4,322-foot water main and covers Halsey Neck Lane north from Meadow Lane to Boyeson Road, and Boyeson Road between Halsey Neck and Captains Neck lanes.

what happened to paving Montauk Highway in Hampton Bays?

A) Hill Street is in the Village of Southampton
B) Montauk Hwy is a county road, not under the control of Mr. Gregor.

Town may be fronting the cash but Mr. Gregor has nothing to do with it.
