Drivers in the Hudson Valley won't have to worry about a long stretch of a popular highway where there's no cell phone service.

"No more dead-zone while driving past Bear Mountain on most of the Palisades Parkway! I'm delighted to announce that construction has been completed for two cell phone towers in the notorious dead-zone on the PIP between Orange and Rockland counties," Skoufis said.
