The long-awaited North Main Street and Accabonac Road train trestle raising project in East Hampton Village is nearly complete.
Spokespeople for the Long Island Rail Road don’t have an exact date as to when the train will be back in service, or when the roads will be completely open and clear of debris. When North Main Street is reopened — which spokespeople said should happen sometime around November 10, but they couldn't give an exact date — Accaboanc Road will be closed to allow crews to complete permanent paving.
The crew worked to install the Accabonac Road bridge on Wednesday, October 30. The bridge, which weights around 175 tons, was lifted off the delivery trailer with a massive crane and was placed over the pier caps and onto the bearings.
