CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- Here's an update on road closures and electricity from the Town of Castle at 3:30pm Wednesday.
5148 homes without electricity.
Roads remain extremely dangerous. Routes 100 and 117 are now fully passable. Con Ed is currently working on Rt. 133. When it is complete, they will move to 128 and Rt. 120. The goal has been that all main roads that lead to the hospital will be clear. After that is completed, they will move to the smaller roads. Restoration of electricity will start after all wires in trees and ground have been de-activated.
We have only had one Con Ed team working with us. We will have a second crew working this evening. This will move us forward more quickly in terms of getting the wires handled. We expect more crews from Con Ed starting tomorrow. This will make the process move more quickly. We have been actively working with Con Ed in pushing them to provide more crews to New Castle.
