HARRISON, N.Y. -- If you've driven through the Village of Harrison in recent weeks, you know it's been a big pain to navigate Halstead Avenue.

Con Edison began replacing its aging gas lines back in August, digging trenches up and down the main drag.

Now, the county Department of Public Works is milling the road’s surface to prepare it for re-paving. The heavily traveled road also is being resurfaced, the county said, to repair asphalt worn down by age and usage.

Other improvement include, it said, the replacement of deteriorated stone curbs and the installation of new "code compliant" handicap ramps.

Basically, the road has been ripped up from Harrison Avenue (Route 127) for about a mile south past Union Street near the village's border with Mamaroneck.

“It’s a massive project,” village Mayor Ron Belmont said Monday.

Belmont said the situation is annoying, but not dangerous.

“Police are posted at every intersection to help direct traffic,” the mayor said, urging drivers to exercise patience and just to be extra careful.

The county said it expects the "vast majority" of the work to be wrapped up before the second week in December. Any touch-ups or certain weather or temperature sensitive things, such as permanent striping, may have to be completed in the spring, it added.

The total project is expected to cost around $1.6 million, which includes construction, design, inspection and administration. The majority of that -- $1.4 million  -- can be attributed to the construction phase, the county said.

Belmont also said the project should be completed by early next month.
