Con Ed is to provide the public and local government officials with a 5-10 year plan of the roads designated to be cut by City of Greenburgh Supervisor Paul Feiner, Esq.
GREENBURGH, NY – August 22, 2021 – In recent years, Con Ed has performed numerous underground gas line replacements in the area. Infrastructure works are necessary and important for our security. What is needed is for Con Ed to provide the public and local government officials with a 5-10 year plan of the roads that are going to be cut.
Over the years, I have noticed that some of the roads that Con Ed is temporarily destroying have recently been milled and paved by local governments. Some roads in the area were destroyed by Con Ed within a year of being repaved. Or, the roads were in great shape before Con Ed started cutting them. An example: Ardsley Road (near Ardsley College) which is currently under construction. A few months ago this part of Ardsley Rd had no potholes, no cracks, no dents. It had been repaved in the past 4 years and would not have needed repaving for years. Today the road is messy. When Con Ed finishes his job before the winter season arrives, they will repav the road and it will look great again. But, money will have been wasted because the road will have been repaved twice.
Milling and repaving roads is very expensive. It doesn’t make sense for local governments to repav a road for Con Ed to break it down shortly after and then repav it. If there was a 5-10 year road plan that Con Ed would work on, every local government in the state would be able to avoid repaving the roads planned for Con Ed’s work. I will contact the Commission of NYS civil service, Con Ed officials, and state officials.
