NWS Update: Roads ‘Treacherous for Travel’

UPDATE The National Weather Service said the bulk of the accumulating snow has ended across the Westport region.

“Any leftover snow will result in little to no accumulation,” it said in a statement.

“Many roads remain snow covered and icy, especially secondary roads.

“With temperatures falling into the single digits and lower teens overnight, untreated surfaces will continue to be treacherous for travel. Use extra caution if you must travel tonight.”

The sale to Building and Land Technology (BLT) was announced tonight by the real estate investor, developer, and operator. Last June, it purchased the Nyala Farm Corporate Center in Westport for $130 million. (See WestportNow June 30, 2014)

The sale puts an end to the threat of the site being developed into a five-story, 200-unit rental housing complex using the state’s controversial affordable housing statute 8-30g.

An earlier report quoting town officials said the sale price was $12.3 million.

Metro-North Explains Morning Commute Problems

UPDATE Metro-North today said power problems in the vicinity of 79th Street in the Park Avenue Tunnel caused morning delays on its lines to Grand Central Terminal.

Hours after its announcement, the railroad reported delays of 20 minutes in the evening commute due to “weather-related power issues in the vicinity of Pelham and Mount Vernon East.”

“Shortly before 8 a.m., a third rail insulator failure knocked one of four tracks in the area out of service, creating train congestion and delays,” an announcement said explaining the morning problems.

“This condition was caused by the effects of roadway deicing salt contaminating the electrified third rail insulators. This failure requires us to shut off power, which enables crews to safely repair the condition.

The two proposed budgets total $202,805,295, a 2.1 percent increase over the current fiscal year’s budget.

John Pincavage, finance board chairman, noted that the board will conduct formal follow-up hearings on March 17, 18 and 19 before its final vote, after which both budgets will go to the Representative Town Meeting (RTM) for its consideration.

“Thank you for the countless hours you put into this,” said finance board member Michael Rea. “You both put in fine budgets.”
