New City residents who were waiting for South Mountain Road to reopen yesterday, Aug. 25, will have to wait at least another week, Clarkstown’s Department of Environmental Control said.
The road has been closed to thru traffic between Hemlock Trail and Tioga Court. The town planned a culvert replacement project beginning Friday, July 25, but work was delayed because workers unexpectedly came across a gas main, said Rich Westervelt, an engineer with Environmental Control. That caused a couple of week’s delay in starting the project.
But workers have apparently been working hard to fix the problem as soon as possible. The street is expected to be open to the public again before the start of school, Westervelt said.
