will begin on two sections of streets in the Village on Monday morning, according to Lindenhurst officials.
"We'll be resurfacing the section of North Wellwood Avenue between Harrington Avenue and John Street and part of Charles Street near and at the intersection of Charles Street and North Alleghany Avenue, next to the baseball field," Doug Madlon, Deputy Village Administrator told Lindenhurst Patch.
According to the Village, both sections of road are in need of repaving, especially the portion of Charles Street adjacent to the Edward F. Kienle field.
"You could see the section of Charles Street that goes to the end of the hut (concession stand) at the intersection is sinking a bit, so we're trying to even it out a bit to make it safer," Madlon said.
"We want to smooth out some of the imperfections," he added.
The paving project will begin sometime Monday morning, after the morning rush, according to Madlon. Milling will be first, followed by repaving.
"Every municipality each year receives a certain amount of money from the state for road work," he said.
Residents living on and around the streets being paved were previously notified by the Village, Madlon assured.
"Fliers were given to residents and businesses on Wellwood Avenue, and on Hartford and Charles Streets and at the intersection of North Alleghany and Charles Street," he said.
The project should be completed by Wednesday, Madlon added.
The rain could become a factor, though current weather forecasts are showing the heaviest rain will continue through the early morning hours, and then it's expected to begin tapering off.
The National Weather Service is predicting the heaviest rain for between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m. Steady rain will continue through the early morning hours, with CBS 2 News at 11 p.m. predicting some drier air by 7 a.m. and a chance of rain again by 7 p.m. on Monday night.
In addition, a flood advisory issued by the NWS stays in effect until 4 a.m. while a flash flood watch will remain in effect through Monday morning. A NWS-issued gale warning will be in effect until 6 a.m.
