These pictures show the eastern end of Sunrise Highway at it appeared before the widening of North Road (CR 39) in 2008. At the time, the NY 27/CR 39 section had only one eastbound lane, which was formed from the two lanes of Sunrise Highway merging with another lane from North Road. This was known as the Shinnecock Squeeze and was the site of notorious traffic jams during the summer months.

These pictures show the section of NY 27 along North Road (CR 39) and Flying Point Road (CR 39) in the area north of Southampton as it appeared prior to the widening.
