Town of Goshen Building Inspector Neal Halloran has shut down the Legoland construction site, as park builders continue struggling to stop polluting local waterways.
Halloran unilaterally halted all construction on Tuesday at the Town of Goshen site near Route 17′s Exit 125, following heavy rain that led to puddling and runoff issues.
Goshen has previously temporarily halted construction on parts of the site, and Legoland has voluntarily stopped construction at times during heavy rain.
But now the site will remain closed until Legoland resolves the drainage issues, Halloran said on Wednesday. Runoff from the site has led to at least 28 state Department of Environmental Conservation citations for polluting local waterways with construction mud since May 2018, plus multiple Town of Goshen citations.
