Tragedy Spurs Effort To Address Encroachments On Town Line Road; Sagaponack To Look At Sidewalk

icon 1 Photo
East Hampton Town and Sagaponack Village are looking for ways to make Town Line Road safer in the wake of a 11-year old boy being killed when he was struck by a car there earlier this year. The village will crack down on landscaping encroachments into the village's road right-of-way at properties on the west side and is considering creating a sidewalk. East Hampton has been asked to eliminate parking on the first 60 feet of the roadway nearest the beach to help cars turn around more easily.
