BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. -- Work by Con Ed crews continues in and around the intersection of Pleasantville and South State roads, according to an update from Village Manager Philip E. Zegarelli.

The village is ready to give the go-ahead to extended work hours during the day and overnight, he said.
The village is asking motorists to prepare for potential delays and shifts in traffic patterns.
Zegarelli also reported that hydrant flushing will continue until Friday, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Residents of these areas can expect discolored water at any time, but especially during the day from 9 .m. to 5 p.m.
Continued testing has shown, Zegarelli said, that the water does not contain any harmful bacteria.
