Town supervisor: Parts of Route 59 expected to remain closed Wednesday morning due to flooding
Both directions of Route 59 from Bobby Lane to Palisades Center Drive were blocked off due to several inches of floodwater on Tuesday night, and the Clarkstown supervisor said parts may remain closed until Wednesday morning.
Police advised drivers to avoid the area and divert through the Palisades Center Mall. Clarkstown Town Supervisor George Hoehmann said commuters should expect at least a portion of the road to be closed Wednesday morning.
Supervisor Hoehmann anticipated that conditions would worsen as high winds could knock down trees and cause power outages.
He says crews were prepared to respond to storm damage.
