TEANECK - Residents in Teaneck are confused why Queen Anne Road was torn up by PSE&G utility crews just days after the town repaved to road.

Many had applauded the decision by the town to repave the road, which they say was in a very bad condition.

However, days after the new pavement was opened to motorists, utility crews cut a number of holes into the road to repair sinkholes caused by previous work done by PSE&G.

The issue only became noticeable after the new pavement was laid down, according to Town Manager William Broughton.

Officials say the utility company will have to pick up the bill, and not the taxpayers, for all the repairs since it was their work that caused the sinkholes.
