• Southampton Town is beginning an emergency project this week to repave Dune Road in Hampton Bays, which has deteriorated severely over the past several years and is prone to persistent heavy flooding during high tides. Work is expected to be done Tuesday through Thursday, with one lane closed and flaggers directing traffic in the area between the Ponquogue Bridge and Tiana Beach. The area west of Tiana to the Quogue Village line will be repaved this fall after summer traffic dies down. The town had budgeted $1 million as part of a proposed $7 million project to raise the road, but could not secure the remainder of the funding. “We need to take immediate action,” according to Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman.  “We can no longer wait for federal, state and county funding to assist us.”

• Southold Town is expected to repave sections of western New Suffolk Avenue in Mattituck today and tomorrow, weather permitting.

• The Southampton Town Board will hold public hearings on amending the town’s water quality advisory committee, accepting Meadowlark Lane in Bridgehampton into the town’s highway system and on waiving fees for construction of community benefit units at their 6 p.m. meeting tonight. Their full agenda is online here.
