In response to a number of complaints regarding the massive construction project that has been underway since last winter at Broadway & 64th Street, we reached out to City Hall with an urgent request to pick up the pace of this project. Originally a DEP project pertaining to catch basin upgrade work, the amount of underground equipment has required the relocation of a significant amount of utility infrastructure, which is causing considerable delay. Since we reached out, we have had several meetings on site with DEP, DOT, Con Ed, the contractor, and some stakeholders to stress the urgency of expediting the work. We are encouraged by the City's responsiveness so far and we will continue to provide updates. We’re keeping our fingers crossed!
