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 §2-11.
