VAILS GATE – Construction of a water line from the Village of Kiryas Joel to New Windsor has caused major traffic jams in the Five Corners area of New Windsor and Town Supervisor George Meyers wants something done about it.

He is concerned that the back-ups are a safety hazard.

“I am advising the contractor that I am shutting the job down. If they show up Monday, then we will have to arrest somebody. They need to do something else. The contractor seems to be concerned with getting the job done and I am concerned with keeping traffic moving, but more concerned about getting emergency vehicles through,” he told Mid-Hudson News.

Meyers said he has received dozens of phone calls from residents complaining about the traffic jams at Five Corners.
