Morris Park Lane and West Drive in northern East Hampton are the latest backroads to be inundated by vehicles trying to dodge traffic backups, to the chagrin of residents. East Hampton Town has proposed imposing a weight limit to at least cut down on the number of heavy commercial vehicles using the narrow residential streets, and two new stop signs to slow some of the cut-through traffic.
