2/15/2021 The Department of Design & Construction alerted Community Board 6 that due to heavy utility interferences at various locations throughout the project, the new anticipated completion date has been delayed to Spring 2023. The original completion date was expected to be Summer 2021. DDC notes that this delay is due to the need to remove utility interferences, which requires time to complete.
