"I know they have done work on Elm Street, now that they have messed up the road are they going to fix it? It is worse than before they were working on it."
Thank you, Annemarie, for that question on this, our final (for now) edition of "You Ask ... Patch Answers," which has asked burning questions regarding a number of interesting topics, from why there is a police officer outside Kings, to why certain traffic signals beep and talk, or who has the best pizza in town ( might have taken the lead based on a pie I got earlier this week, but that can be for another post).
Annemarie's question has a happy answer, as Michael Rogers, business administrator for the town, told us this week that PSE&G had finished their work on Elm Street and had paved over the construction area, leaving a much more manageable road.
While PSE&G's original reason for ripping up the roads–replacement of some gas lines–had not been a problem, Rogers said the work on the road afterward had been "unsatisfactory.
"It was creating a lot of problems," he said. For a period, work on remediating Elm Street was "at a standstill," Rogers said, as some issues needed to be addressed with PSE&G. Once that was taken care of, he said work resumed on correcting the cleanup and is now complete.
Another thing that is complete is this column–well, at least as a week-in, week-out feature. We'll still take on good questions that come our way, just not on a set schedule. So keep the questions coming by either by , or ask them of fellow Patch readers in our brand-new Q&A section.
