Closing Bell: Details Aired on Nassau Ave Reconstruction


The Department of Design and Commission released details on a large capital construction project on Nassau Avenue from Manhattan Avenue to Apollo Street in Greenpoint. New York Shitty has been covering the impending construction, but noted today the project hasn’t begun and is already fraught with challenges. Despite setbacks, the scope of the project includes street level improvements like replacing existing infrastructure; improving the drainage to address previous flooding problems; and various traffic calming measures. More specifically, the street will get new granite curbs, neckdowns at certain intersections, pedestrian ramps and decorative street lighting. Water mains will be replaced and storm and sanitary sewers will be reconstructed. This month and next the city will be doing pre-construction work, tree pruning, and installing catch basins. Construction should last (if all goes well, that is) until the fall.
