Jessup Lane Bridge Now Open

Westhampton Beach's second bridge to Dune Road is now open.

Four days after Hurricane Sandy shut down all bridge access to Dune Road, flooding the roadway making it virtually impassable, the Village of Westhampton Beach has announced that it has re-opened its Jessup Lane Bridge.

The bridge re-opened at 4:30 on Friday, a day after Westhampton Beach opened the Beach Lane Bridge and the Village of Quogue opened its Post Lane Bridge, allowing Dune Road business and homeowners to assess damage.

The Ponquogue Bridge in Hampton Bays; however, remains closed as Dune Road to the west of the bridge is virtually impassable due to a full washover.

According to Jennifer Garvey, spokeswoman for the Town of Southampton, business owners and fishermen looking to get their boats and assess damage can obtain a hold harmless waiver by going to town hall. They must have a four-wheel drive vehicle to drive on Dune Road since it is all sand.

Access to the Southampton portion of Dune Road will also be blocked from the Quogue side as the area also is impassable.
