The New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) wishes to advise you that a construction project will soon begin at the Mary Lindley Murray School in the school’s playground. The project will be a repair of vault bulging walls located next to the school building in the playground. At this time, protective measures will be installed around the schoolyard and construction will begin. The project will have a level of noise, as there will be breaking up of the asphalt and excavation of the soil under the asphalt as well as compaction of the subsurface when we install the new asphalt. There will be some asbestos abatement done on the site. The workers who are in actual contact with the asbestos will be wearing protective suits and respirators...The consultant will also monitor the air in the immediate area to insure that the removal is taking place properly...The contractual time line for this project began in May and the bulk of the work will be done by March 2020. During the school year, regular project work will start after school hours. If you have any questions or need further information, please call Steven Tuozzolo at 718-752-5226.
