Motorists should expect lane closures for concrete pavement repairs of State Route 231/Deer Park Avenue in the Towns of Huntington and Babylon, Suffolk County.

Beginning on Monday, September 18, there will be short term lane closures on State Route 231 between the Southern State Parkway and Interstate 495/Long Island Expressway between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Portable variable message signs have been placed along the 4.5-mile route with additional information regarding the closures.

This is part of a $6.4 million New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) project to maintain the roadway that is expected to be completed in the winter of 2018/2019.

Work for this project is being completed during off peak hours.

Motorists are reminded to drive carefully through the work zone, obey any speed restrictions that may be in place, and the instructions of the flag persons for their safety and the safety of the highway work crew.  As with most road and bridge projects, work may be cancelled, postponed, or prolonged due to inclement weather.

For real-time travel information motorists should call 511 or visit, New York State’s official traffic and travel information source.

The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) appreciates the patience and cooperation of motorists and the local community while these bridge safety inspections are undertaken to help assure the continued protection of all motorists.
