Construction is underway at AMF Smithtown Lanes after the latest blizzard collapsed the longtime Smithtown staple hangout's roof.
The general manager at Commack Lanes Henry Streich confirmed in a phone interview mid February that the Smithtown bowling alley would be "completely rebuilt." In a report Wednesday, AMF Smithtown Lanes has a construction timeline and plan to re-open in four to six months.

Following the collapse, the Commack Lanes and Centereach Lanes have agreed to split the bowling leagues from Smithtown between the Commack and Centereach locations, and birthday and other parties planned at Smithtown would be moved to the AMF's other branches. Employees of the AMF Smithtown Lanes will be taken in by the Commack and Centereach sites, as well.
