HARRISON, N.Y. -- Ongoing construction near Harrison Avenue has extended onto Union Avenue, temporarily closing the road for parts of the day. Efforts to replace an underground gas main are expected to be completed in the coming weeks.
Harrison Police blocked off the intersections at Harrison and Union avenues this week and also stopped cars from entering the road at the intersection of Nelson and Union avenues. Consolidated Edison and engineers were on the scene continuing work to replace the gas main.
A larger and more sustainable plastic pipe will be inserted and completed to allow regular traffic flow within three weeks, according to Fred Heyde of White Plains' Birdsall Engineering .
"There have been a few minor road bumps, but things have overall gone well," Heyde said.
Heyde said last month that the goal was to have the work done by the time school starts up so it didn't interfere with traffic flow.
