I reminded you this morning that work to move a gas main under Route 59 in Central Nyack was starting today and would continue for a couple weeks.
Guess what? Once Orange & Rockland Utilities tore up the road to get to its gas main that was supposed to have been causing drainage problems in the Central Nyack neighborhood near Nyack Lumber Yard and the entrance to and exit from the New York State Thruway, crews discovered the pipe was not the culprit, after all.
Turns out, O&R said today, the area around the culvert was “jammed with hardened mud and debris.” The main wasn’t even inside the culvert.
So O&R will repave the road tomorrow and all lanes will open by day’s end.
Will drivers have to be inconvenienced at some other time for the state Department of Transportation to clean out the culvert? (Route 59 is a state road and so the DOT has responsibility for its maintenance.) Or, it may be the Nyack Water Co.’s repsonsibility.
