The public will have its chance to weigh in Monday night on a proposed realignment of the Route 24 traffic circle in Riverside.
For months, of the five arteries to the traffic circle, with the aim of lessening congestion.
Back in February, the Southampton Town board discussed options. One alternative, which was slated to cost approximately $8 million, called for ending Lake Avenue before it reaches the traffic circle and condemning land by eminent domain, where the current Budget Host Inn and a shuttered diner currently sits, with the goal of realigning County Road 104.
The county and the town board said in February that the plan was likely too pricey. A second $5 million suggestion, which would eliminate the County Road 104 leg of the traffic circle, near the New York State police barracks, and reroute traffic patterns through a new hamlet center in Riverside proposed with an eye toward revitalizing the area with new business, was discussed.
Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman (I-Montauk) will be onhand at Monday night's meeting of the Flanders Riverside and Northampton Community Association at the David W. Crohan Flanders Community Center at 7 p.m. to discuss the options and garner public public input.
Members of the Suffolk County Department of Public Works will also be present.
