Cell Phone “Dead Zone” in North Rockland and Orange County to be Fixed by End of Year

Construction on two cell phone towers is now underway to help create better cell phone service in the dead zone that blankets parts of North Rockland and Orange County around the Palisades Parkway. The two towers are being built by Verizon in Tomkins Cove and Bear Mountain, and should be done by the end of August. Rockland and Westchester state senator David Carlucci says these improvements are long overdue…

Back in February, the president of Woodbury Community Ambulance, Debbie Vobroucek, lamented that without sufficient cell service, it’s near impossible to get an accident victim’s precise location…

Electric service will be installed after the towers are complete, and then they’ll be fully activated by the end of the year.
