Town Announces Road Closing in New City Due to Drainage Project

A Portion of Phillips Hill Road Closed Monday, March 7 through April


(New City, NY) - Phillips Hill Road in New City between Mary Ann Lane and New Hempstead Road will be closed due to a drainage project starting Monday, March 7 through April. 


During that time, the Town of Clarkstown will undertake the Phillips Hill Road Culvert Replacement Project.  The project will replace the existing drainage culvert beneath Phillips Hill Road located just south of the entrance to the Woodmont Day Camp (formerly Candy Mountain Day Camp, 420 Phillips Hill Road) with new twin pre-fabricated concrete box culverts and related construction activity.  The culvert is being replaced due to repeated damage from severe storm runoff. 


A detour will be in place diverting traffic from Phillips Hill Road to New Hempstead Road (and vice versa) via Mary Ann Lane and Patricia Drive.  The road closure is expected to last approximately eight weeks.


This project is part of the Town’s overall aggressive efforts for flood mitigation and prevention.  As part of Supervisor Gromack’s Drainage Task Force, the Town has invested more than $16 million in infrastructure projects to eradicate or eliminate flooding. 


Questions pertaining to this project should be directed to the Town of Clarkstown Department of Environmental Control at (845) 639-2111 Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
