[ARCHIVED] From the Mayor's Desk...August 6, 2020 - Post-Storm Update

Today’s update is a little more positive than yesterday. Con Edison’s cut and clear teams were in the Village helping to remove dangerous entangled wires so that our DPW crews could open up the roads. As of now, Park Road has been re-opened, restoring critical access to an entire neighborhood that was largely cut off. Hudson Road West and Clifton Place are being opened to allow access to the Village’s sewage pumping station. Next is Cyrus Field Road and we’ll continue on throughout the Village.

But, the work done today has not restored power to any customers in Irvington. Con Edison has announced that 90% of its customers will be restored by Sunday night. With that timetable established, we are hopeful that restoration will begin as early as tomorrow. Keep in mind that the Village does not control or dictate what areas get restored. While we need to make sure that critical facilities like emergency services, hospitals, and pump stations have power, Con Edison ultimately determines how and when repairs are made. We do our best to get “inside” information, but often we are left monitoring the same dashboard that you see.

As your neighbors begin to get power restored, please continue to report outages directly to Con Edison at 1-800-75-CONED. We don’t want you to be accidentally removed from the restoration list. The outage map at outagemap.coned.com will be updated with restoration times for each neighborhood as they are determined. 

As cleanup continues, please exercise caution while traveling. While some roads have been opened, there is still a tremendous amount of debris and wires laying around. 

All the best,

Brian C. Smith, Mayor
