NORFOLK--Larchmont residents are bracing for 10 weeks of detours while the city replaces a drainage culvert under Jamestown Crescent.

Roads near the Colley Ave. Bridge, including Colley Ave., will be closed but the bridge will remain open.

Crews are replacing the culvert before it collapses and creates even more flooding problems.

Construction leader Wesley Ship says a new culvert will decrease some flooding in Larchmont.

"The existing is old and damaged. It's filled with debris and it's going to improve the water flow through here," said Ship. 

The project will cost the city an estimated $700,000.
