Must Read

The massive Grand Street water main project has been slowly creeping its way eastward. Beginning this week, it’s going to start impacting the Lower East Side in a big way. Grand Street west of Essex Street is now closed to westbound traffic. One lane of eastbound traffic remains open.

According to a notice from the Department of Design & Construction, the westbound lane will be blocked all the way to Chrystie Street until November. Work hours are scheduled between 7 a.m.-4 p.m., although the detour is in effect 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Workers are installing distribution pipes and other infrastructure for New York City’s new water Tunnel No. 3, a monumental public works project that’s been going on for 40 years.
