Aerial Photos After Sandy: Dune Road, East Quogue

A view from above Dune Road in East Quogue a month after Superstorm Sandy.

Dune Road in East Quogue, which was impassable after Superstorm Sandy struck on October 29, is now accessible as seen in aerial photos provided to Westhampton-Hampton Bays Patch.

Up until two weeks ago, Dune Road in the East Quogue area was covered inches thick with sand that washed over from the dunes. Only residents, signing a hold harmless agreement, were granted access to the area.

Southampton Highway Department crews have been on site, moving sand and are currently working on a plan to raise the roadway using the Sandy sand. A project to replenish the dunes in the area is also underway with a dredge in place to move 450,000 cubic yards of sand to Shinnecock and Tiana.
