Bridge-Sag Turnpike Will Get a Redo

Thu, 06/13/2024 - 17:04
The next phase of road improvements on the Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike will run from Scuttlehole Road to Brick Kiln Road.

Suffolk County announced Friday that it is planning to reconstruct part of County Road 79, better known as the Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike, on an approximately 1.5-mile stretch from Scuttlehole Road north to Brick Kiln Road.

There will be a public information meeting about the planned work at 7 p.m. on Monday at the South Fork Natural History Museum on the Turnpike.

The project involves resurfacing, building new curbs and sidewalks to provide "continuous pedestrian facilities throughout the corridor," repairs and upgrades to drainage systems, improved lanes for bicyclists, and a new traffic signal at the intersection of Narrow Lane in Bridgehampton.

County officials including Legislator Ann Welker will explain the project and take public comments Monday.
