Access to Stony Brook Road from State Route 25A will be blocked because of the project, a spokesman for the Brookhaven Town Highway Department said Thursday in a statement. The road is expected to reopen Saturday.

There will be limited access to Stony Brook Road between State Route 347 and the South Drive entrance to Stony Brook University, the statement said.
