MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- Motorists are urged to find alternate parking and routes because Con Edison will begin paving various streets throughout Mount Vernon on Saturday, Dec. 20.
The city recently met with Con Ed representatives to discuss gas pipeline installation work continuing through the winter. A big concern for city officials was street conditions in areas that were first excavated. Some of those streets will be restored when paving is complete.
The following streets that have been excavated from the start of the project are included:
- 4th Street between 7th and 9th avenues
- 9th Avenue between 4th and 5th streets
- 5th Street between 9th Avenue and Mundy Lane
Upgrading of the gas transmissions system in the Mount Vernon area will continue and excavation is ongoing as Con Ed proceeds to install gas transmission pipe on East 4th Street between Union and Nuber avenues.
Customers are reminded that service will not be interrupted during work.
