Single lane, alternating directional travel operations are now in effect off-peak, midday between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on NY Route 114 between Toilsome Lane and Stephen Hands Path in the Town of East Hampton. Southbound motorists are being stopped for a brief period while northbound motorists use the single available travel lane; then northbound motorists are being stopped while southbound motorists proceed. A single travel lane is available at all times to emergency vehicles.
These single travel lane operations are needed to repair and repave a deteriorated section of Route 114 to help ensure the safety of motorists, and are expected to continue for about three days, weather permitting.
Motorists are reminded to drive carefully through the work zone, obey the posted construction speed limit, and the instructions of the flag persons for their safety and the safety of the highway work crew. As with most road and bridge projects, this repair operation may be cancelled, postponed, or prolonged due to inclement weather.
