The New York State Department of Transportation will embark on its journey to resurface Route 27 "from Water Mill to Montauk" starting next week. According to the East Hampton Press, the DOT decided to kick off the overhaul a bit sooner than expected because an assemblyman "requested the project be expedited in response to complaints from constituents." Great! The DOT will focus first on a couple of particularly troublesome areas, especially those "sections of the roadway that are most dangerous to motorists." And then it'll continue to crawl down Montauk Highway—a trip that'll take until 2012.
