Robocall sent August 20:
This is the City of New Rochelle with a traffic advisory for this weekend and an update on storm cleanup.
From Friday night at 11:00pm through Sunday evening at 6:00pm, the Hutchinson River Parkway will be closed in both directions from I-95 to the Cross County Parkway. This is to accommodate a New York State bridge replacement project at Lincoln Avenue. Traffic will be detoured and this may affect our local roadways, so please exercise caution and plan accordingly
Post-storm cleanup is in full swing, with special crews dedicated to debris removal working systematically through neighborhoods, but full citywide clean-up may still take more than a week. In the meantime, yard waste pickup will proceed on its usual schedule.
Alternate side parking regulations and the ban on leaf blowers remain suspended for now, but will resume after Labor Day.
