TUCKAHOE, N.Y. – The Tuckahoe Department of Public Works was hard at work Tuesday, clearing tree limbs and debris from village roads, allowing most to be re-opened  Tuesday afternoon.

All main roads in the village are clear and open, according to officials. DPW teams have been working in cooperation with Con Edison to cut and clear tree limbs after downed power lines were de-energized.

According to Tuckahoe Mayor Steven Ecklond, the teamwork allowed Con Edison to restore service more quickly. He predicted that all customers would have power back at some point Wednesday.

“The result of the joint effort dramatically reduces the time Con Edison needs to restore service to our residents since they do not have to wait for a tree removal team,” he said in a storm status report. “Power outages in the Village have been reduced from a peak of 2,000 to a few dozen.”

Village offices will re-open Wednesday, though public schools remain closed. Recycling pick-up will resume on Wednesday morning.
