Park Avenue Tunnel work on the north portal will require temporary lane closues on Park Avenue November 7-15

Thursday, November 7, 2019

Please see the attached NYC DOT Important Notice advising of hydrodemolition construction work currently taking place at the north portal as part of the Park Avenue Tunnel Rehabilitation project. 

Hydrodemolition is a concrete removal technique which utilizes high-pressure water to remove deteriorated and sound concrete as well as asphalt and grout. It is part of the process necessary to repair the walls at the north portal and should last approximately one week. 

This work has been purposely scheduled during the daytime working hours in order to avoid disturbances during the evening.
