A response from the NYS Department of Transportation
We looked into your request below. The project started approximately 1.5 years ago. Some of the noise and long-running work he is referring to could be gas main work that ConEdison has been doing in the area for the past several months.
Stage 1 deck demolition has been going on at night for a couple of weeks now and is mostly complete. According to the contractors current schedule, they plan to start installing overhang brackets this week along with other work to be able to pour the deck by mid-September.
The work at this site is behind schedule due primarily to extensive steel repairs which have been found to be necessary, beyond what was estimated and included in the contract. Based on current progress, it is possible that Stage 2 of the project will be pushed to 2023. If so, this would not have an adverse impact on traffic since 2 lanes will be able to be maintained through the winter, whether it be in the current configuration on the NB side of the existing deck or on the new SB side of the deck being constructed in Stage 1.
Hope this helps answer their concern. If you have any follow up questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
