Reconstruction of the Clinton Avenue municipal parking lot has begun in Huntington village.
The project, which began Tuesday, includes the construction of new curbs and pavement, landscaping repairs, standardization of traffic lanes, new sidewalks and streetlighting appurtenances, new traffic control signage and the planting of trees.
The upgrade will feature new dumpster locations for area merchants and surveilence cameras for public safety, according to town officials.
J. Anthony Enterprises Inc. of Bohemia was contracted to complete the work at a cost not to exceed $286,209, according to a resolution approved in June by the Huntington Town Board.
The project will be partially funded through a $50,000 Suffolk County revitalization grant and a $5,000 grant from the Huntington Village Business Improvement District.
The overhaul should take about one month to complete, according to Town Information Officer A.J. Carter.
