A Con Edison project has sectioned off one half of the road between Palmer Ave and Prospect Ave along Fenimore Rd to replace the gas mains.
Con Edison contracted Perisco Construction to prepare the small section of Fenimore, including the road along Prospect Ave up until Delancey Ave.
"We're doing the trenching, and ConEd is going to take care of all the service," said Michael, a Perisco contractor present at the site Wednesday morning.
Michael said the Mt. Vernon construction company began trenching about a month ago and anticipates they will finish in two weeks, at which point Con Edison will begin replacing the current metal gas mains with plastic ones. Michael added that this new piping will improve the pressure along this section of Mamaroneck, which had been experiencing low pressure.
