Some of the massive utility poles that caused controversy in Eastport are coming down.
PSEG Long Island has agreed to remove 24 of the 80-foot storm-hardened poles on Eastport Manor Road.
News 12 has reported that residents were outraged at their placement and the Town of Brookhaven sued to have the poles removed.
The utility says the power lines will now be buried. The project is expected to cost about $13.5 million, according to Newsday. The work should be completed by next year.
