Bridgehampton Traffic Safety Study
Client: Town of Southampton, NY
Location: Village of Bridgehampton, NY
LKMA is conducting a Traffic Safety Study in the hamlet of Bridgehampton. Funded by NY State, the study is developing recommendations along multiple roadway corridors within the hamlet which have differing traffic conditions. Along Montauk Highway (NY Route 27), improving year-round safety for pedestrians who cross the roadway in the hamlet’s business district, while not causing additional delays for motorists in the peak tourist season nor adding traffic to local “bypass” routes, is the key objective. On local residential roads paralleling Montauk Highway to the north and south which are heavily used when the highway is congested, traffic calming is the principal objective. The NY State Department of Transportation is an active participant in the study.
