Halesite roads to be closed for drainage project
Parts of Creek Road and Hill Place in Halesite will be closed starting Monday as part of an $18 million drainage project, the state Department of Transportation said.
Motorists should expect detours starting at 10 a.m. Monday and lasting until 6 a.m. Thursday, with the exception of local traffic, the agency said in a news release.
Vehicles navigating the area in the Town of Huntington will be guided around construction via detour signs, the release said.
Creek Road will be closed between Wall Street and Route 110/New York Avenue. Northbound traffic will be detoured via West Shore Road to Mill Dam, and southbound traffic will be detoured to Route 110/New York Avenue to Leverich Place.
Hill Place will be closed between Creek Road and Route 110/New York Avenue, and traffic will be detoured to Leverich Place.
The closures are needed for relocating the existing sanitary sewer and installing new pipes and manholes as part of the ongoing $18 million Department of Transportation drainage and safety improvement project for a low-lying, coastal area, the release said.
The roadwork could be canceled, postponed or prolonged because of inclement weather, the agency said. Emergency service providers and local officials have been notified of these closures. Motorists, businesses and residents are being warned in advance of the closings via road signs and should plan ahead and use alternate routes to avoid delays.
