RIDGGEFIELD, Conn. – As of Sunday morning all of Ridgefield’s roads have been deemed passable but a large amount of tree and line work still needs to be done, officials said.

By late Sunday there were 62 line crews and 32 tree crews working in town, that number will be increased to 100 line crews by Monday morning, and First Selectman Rudy Marconi asks residents to be patient because the crews may be blocking off streets.

“A lot of the roads are going to be shut down. They’re going to set up, barricade the road to begin the restoration effort they are not going to break down to let a car go through,” Marconi said. “We don’t’ know their work schedule and we can’t tell you what roads they’re going to be on at this point. So if you do come upon it you may have to turn around and seek an alternate route.”

Monday will also see crews from AT&T and Comcast looking at and fixing wires that belong to those utility companies.

“We will be spending a major portion of the day correcting those situations with those utilities,” said Marconi.
