ARDSLEY, N.Y. - One lane of American Legion Drive in downtown Ardsley will be closed for at least five days starting Tuesday as United Water repairs an underground water main leak.

Ardsley Village Manager George F. Calvi said the urgent repairs would be made on a water main embedded in the hillside of American Legion Drive and that parts being used in the repair were on order. The lane closure was scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Tuesday.

"We know this will be an incredible inconvenience for many being so close to the holidays, but I underscore the word urgent because if the main blows out it could undermine the roadbed of American Legion Drive," Calvi said. "The work will require a lane closure on that road for several days to accommodate the maneuvering of heavy equipment."

The work is expected to last through Dec. 15. Northbound traffic along American Legion Drive between Center Street and Ashford Avenue will be prohibited to all except first responders. The southbound traffic lane on American Legion Drive will remain open, permitting access to the Ardsley Village Hall parking lot and the Ardsley Community Nursery School parking lot.

"There will be no impact to access at the Ardsley Public Library or the ASVAC (The Ardsley-Secor Volunteer Ambulance Corps) building," Calvi said. "United Water has assured us that flag men and women will be on  hand to assist with traffic."
