Residents, officials push for halt in Yorktown road construction

Posted: Updated:
YORKTOWN -

Residents and officials in Yorktown are banding together to halt construction at a busy intersection before winter arrives.

They are calling on Con Edison to stop work on a gas pipe at the intersection of Gomer Street and London Road because of large plates in the road. Critics say the plates are damaging car tires and will be impossible to plow this winter.  

"I understand they need to do their jobs, but they need to do it more expeditiously and they need to plan for it better," said resident Patrick Geoghegan. 

Yorktown Highway Superintendent Dave Paganelli told News 12 that plowing the road will not be a problem. 

"These roads will be paved and we'll be plowing these roads this winter. You have my word on that," he said. 

News 12 is told that Con Edison will stop work on any new projects until a remediation plan is in effect.
