Holiday Updates

Posted on October 26, 2017

With the holidays fast approaching, we wanted to take a moment to remind all our family and friends of closings and/or construction embargoes so that you can plan accordingly.

The Department of Buildings will be closed for the following upcoming holidays:

Additionally, be aware that starting Wednesday November 15, 2017, the 2017 Department of Transportation Holiday Construction Embargo will go into effect and last through January 2, 2018.
Routine (non-emergency) work shall not be permitted unless approval from New York City Department of Transportation’s (NYCDOT) Office of Construction Mitigation and Coordination (OCMC) is first obtained. Emergency Street Openings/excavations are not affected by the embargo, but still require an emergency number obtained by the department in compliance with 34 RCNY ยง2-11.

See memo issued by the DOT here.

To see which streets are effected see DOT’s website here.
