37th Street Closed from the FDR Service Road to 1st Avenue
Friday, July 9, 2021
Notice July 9, 2021
Community Board 6 was informed that due to urgent work relating to the replacement of a transformer at the Con Edison Substation on 36th Street, effective immediately East 37th Street between the FDR Service Road and 1st Avenue is closed to vehicular traffic. Con Edison aims to complete the work by the end of the month, but the East 37th Street closure could last as long as August 7, 2021. It may also be necessary to close 37th Street to pedestrian and bike traffic at some stage in the future, but CB6 has urged Con Ed to keep pedestrian and bike lane access open as long as it is safe to do so. Additional street closures are expected.
As CB6 learns more from Con Ed, they will update the Work Notices section on their website cbsix.org, so please consult their website for up to date details.
