Port residents will be experiencing more traffic congestion between March 1 and July 21.
Village of Plandome Village Clerk Tim Rice advises that the village has awarded the contract for the Plandome Road Improvement Project. The project encompasses gutter/drainage reconstruction, road rehabilitation and total resurfacing for the entire length of the road within the village. The project will begin with utility pole relocations scheduled for March 1 and continue through the anticipated completion date of July 21, 2000.
According to Rice, it is anticipated that traffic will be limited to one lane for the duration of the project with a limited period of time when the entire road will be closed to all traffic except local and emergency traffic. The village will be placing extensive warning signs and notices in an effort to deter motorists from the area. "It is our hope that these motorists will use Port Washington Blvd. to avoid the considerable delays that will be associated with the project. We strongly suggest that you avoid the entire construction area until after the completion of the project," notes Rice.
In addition, he advises drivers that "No Thru Trucking laws will be strictly enforced on all village streets other than Plandome and Stonytown Roads during this project."
