An eastbound lane of County Road 39 in Southampton is partially closed Tuesday morning for tree trimming, backing up traffic to Hampton Bays.

Southampton Town issued an alert at 8:45 a.m. stating, “PSEG road work closes 1 lane on CR 39 at the end of Sunrise Highway.”

The tree work began at the western end of County Road 39 and continues to move eastbound.

The heavy traffic is similar to what happens following a serious car accident on County Road 39, but in this case it was not an emergency forcing a lane closure.
