Electronic Signs Warn Motorists
Again this year, Southampton Town has coordinated with the New York State Department of Transportation to have electronic advisory message signs placed on Sunrise Highway and on Montauk Highway to alert motorists of events which may disrupt traffic flow. Two advisory signs will be located on Sunrise Highway in the Hampton Bays area to alert motorists travelling eastbound; a third sign is located on Montauk Highway near the Southampton border with East Hampton to alert motorists travelling westbound
The placement of these signs continues the program initiated by the Town in 2014 to aid motorists by providing information on problematic traffic conditions in advance of their encountering such conditions. Providing an early alert will assist drivers by giving them an opportunity to select an alternate route or to possibly change their travel plans, depending on the situation. "We appreciate the support of the New York State DOT in working with us on this program” stated Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne Holst. “Based on the positive feedback received during the initial deployment in 2014, we know these message displays provide our residents, visitors and those who work in the Town with timely information at key locations in our roadway network.” Activation of these signs and coordination of the message to be displayed is cooperatively managed by the Southampton Town Police working closely with the New York State DOT. This program is one tool the Town has implemented to alert people of important travel related information. In addition, motorists can go to the Town’s website (www.southamptontownny.gov), like us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/Southamptontownny) or follows us on Twitter (www.twitter.com/southamptontown) to get notifications sent to your smart phones as they occur. “Traffic congestion can be very frustrating to motorists in addition to creating unsafe conditions.” Supervisor Throne-Holst added. “We are seeking every way we can to lessen that frustration and improve safety for visitors and residents alike.”
