Southampton Village drivers can expect delays on North Sea Road this week as the village wraps up two projects that will force periodic lane closures.
As part of the projects, which involve paving and drainage, North Sea Road between Prospect Street and Bowden Square will see delays from Tuesday morning through the afternoon of Thursday, October 24, according to Gary Goleski, superintendent for public works.
The first project, at Prospect Street, is for permanent repair of a pothole. According to Mr. Goleski, last year the hole was quite extensive and the village did a temporary repair. Now, with a traffic light project completed, the village is having a permanent fix installed with new asphalt. The project is to be completed one-half at a time.
The second project is to install new drainage at Bowden Square. New catch basins are the final stage of a three-part installation, which involves running a new pipe under North Sea Road, in turn forcing lane closures, Mr. Goleski said.
