The Riverhead Highway Department will be paving Sound Avenue between Twomey and Fresh Pond avenues today, Highway Superintendent Mike Zaleski said.

There will be lane closures as crews work in the roadway, Zaleski said, but one lane will remain open as the work continues.

Highway crews are working on Youngs Avenue early this morning and will begin work on Sound Avenue at around 9 a.m., Zaleski said. The job will be finished up tomorrow, he said.

Use an alternate route if possible to avoid delays.
