"We were delayed by about six to seven hours," Joe Bilotta of Bilotta Construction said. "Mostly from water buildup in the roads."
Bilotta said despite the very minor setbacks, things were moving along smoothly with an estimated completion date of mid-September.
Bilotta said construction crews would be replacing the road's curbs and sidewalks up to Union Avenue.
The project began in the middle of July with an original completion date of middle to late August.
Nelson Avenue was closed partially on Monday as a fallen tree sat in the road after the tropical storm hit.
In total, 30 downed trees hit electrical wires and 28 streets were closed from the storm and its aftermath, according to Harrison Mayor and Supervisor Joan Walsh.
The storm canceled flights throughout the Northeast and also closed major highways and roads on the ground. More than 1,000 residents were left without power and several Harrison roads were covered in debris, mostly from trees.
Residents of the area are advised to park along side streets until the work is completed.
