“A semi-miracle”
Krumkill is open again

By Saranac Hale Spencer

NEW SCOTLAND — The portion of Krumkill Road, near the Normans Kill, that was damaged during Tropical Storm Irene and closed on Nov. 5 is open again.

Residents who own the land next to the roadway granted the town a temporary easement to run a new strip of road next to the old one.  The town’s highway department did everything itself in laying the new road except for the final coat of blacktop, Supervisor Thomas Dolin said this week.

Of the highway superintendent, Darrell Duncan, Dolin said, “He accomplished a semi-miracle here.”

Earlier this month, Duncan had estimated that the temporary fix would cost about $20,000.
