BRIARCLIFF, N.Y. – Updates about Con Edison roadwork tops the Briarcliff Village Manager’s report for the week ending July 31.
The planned work sector for Con Ed’s gas main upgrade along Pleasantville Road runs roughly south of the Post Office to the intersection (“bump-out”); south on South State a few hundred feet, and up Elm Road for a short distance. Painted “mark-outs” line the affected areas. Starting this week, test pits will be made to verify and locate existing services. The village is looking to accelerate the intersection/”bump-out” work portion quickly, allowing for extended work hours during the day and overnight to complete the intersection before the start of the school year.
