Traffic on Main Road and Bay Bulls Road will be impacted by a construction project to upgrade sewer infrastructure in Goulds and Kilbride, from April until end of November 2022. Delays and detours will be required during construction.

The City will make every effort to minimize interruptions. Pedestrian access will be maintained, and the public are asked to obey and follow all posted signage in and near the construction zones.

Project Details
Construction began in fall 2021 to install sanitary sewage infrastructure to redirect raw sewage from the Goulds Pumping Station to the Riverhead Wastewater Treatment Facility.

The infrastructure installation will occur in two areas:

  • Main Road from the sewage pumping station (near Heffernan's Place) to south of Ruby Line
  • Main Road / Bay Bulls Road, south of Ruby Line to Walsh's Lane 

This project also includes intersection re-alignment at Old Bay Bulls Road and Bay Bulls Road, road reinstatement, and asphalt paving. Further background information about the project is online, including a map of the construction areas.

Current Traffic Impacts
Until Friday, May 27:

  • Bay Bulls Road is reduced to one lane between Old Bay Bulls Road and Lundrigan’s Road, see traffic advisory for details.
  • A detour is in place on Main Road, between Dooling’s Line and Ruby Line intersections, detouring to Back Line, see traffic advisory for details.
