It is wet and messy out there — and roads in some towns are worse than roads in other burbs. Here is a recap of what is happening in the towns of Northern Westchester.
Armonk: Creemer Road is closed. Route 22 is closed between Banksville Road and Sterling Road.
Bedford: Commissioner of Public Works Kevin Winn said most town roads are open and passable, though there some branches near the shoulders in some places. Downed trees are being removed on Chestnut Ridge and Oregon Road, he added.
Briarcliff Manor: Sleepy Hollow Road south of Long Hill Road, remains closed because a large tree is blocking that roadway. Village crews are waiting for ConEd to move the live wires entangled in the branches before moving the tree, Village Manager Phil Zegarelli said.
Also closed is a part of Old Sleepy Hollow Road. Homes off these streets and some others in the Rosecliff vicinity are without electric power, he added. The village is hooking up generators to power the water pumps at Rosecliff and Pocantico Lake stations. Though it might seem counter-intuitive with all this rain, Zegarelli urged residents to be frugal with their use of water as the water tanks cannot function without power and that auxiliary systems are in place.
Lewisboro: No issues.
Mount Kisco: No major problems.
New Castle: Although there are no reported power outages and no road closures as a result of the weekend’s storm, New Castle is still dealing with the aftermath of the storm from two weeks ago.
“This week’s storm has just extended our work efforts,” said the Department of Public Works Commissioner Anthony Vaccaro. “We have a lot of down trees and drainage problems and we are working on clearing them.”
Ossining: The town roads are fine, said Highway Superintendent Michael O’Connor, who urges motorist to slow down and drive cautiously since there is some small debris and puddles in the roadways.
Pound Ridge: Minimal problems here, said highway foreman Vinnie Duffield. Crews have mostly been cleaning out catch basins and taking care of water flooding issues, he said. Some small tree branches are blocking parts of South Bedford Road.
On Monday, a utility pole snapped on Hack Green Road leaving some homes without power.
Somers: Crews said there were no major problems. Some downed trees have been removed, officials said.
