Photos: Route 111 Construction Picks Up

Heavy equipment brought in to begin working on expanding Route 111 in Hauppauge.

Hauppauge drivers may find their morning commute more complicated as Route 111/Wheeler Road construction kicks into full gear. 

Construction crews have started to move forward with Route 111 expansion in earnest, often shutting down one lane of traffic over the past week. Payloaders and other heavy equipment have been spotted along Route 111 for more than a week. 

The expansion of Route 111 is tied to the Route 347 greenway project, in effort to improve traffic flow and safety in the area.

When can we see this construction end? Seems like they dig a hole then fill the hole then dig the hole and fill the hole. Its like the scene in cool hand luke where he digs and fills the same hole over and over. Just seems very slow and dont see much progress
