It’s after October 1, 2007 so we should expect to start seeing the NYC DOT contractors begin to work on the Roosevelt Island Bridge. As I reported on August 31st, the NYC DOT posted its 30 day notice that construction would begin on or after October 1st and that the project is scheduled to take two years.
According to the official Work Notice, issued by the NYC DOT, they have assigned a Project Community Liaison, Ms. Tiffany Asberry, to provide our community with information and to respond to any project related questions, comments, or complaints. Ms. Asberry can be reached at 212-758-1060.
The above picture is provided as a reminder of what the bridge looks like today before the shrouds of cloth are put up making the bridge look like a giant piñata.
