DSNY Announces Organics Recycling Program Expansion in Bay Ridge
Department of Sanitation announces the expansion of the Organics Recycling Program in Bay Ridge beginning the week of June 8th.

This spring, homes in Bay Ridge from 65th Street to 74th Street will be added to the NYC Department of Sanitation’s program to collect organic waste from residents.

Twice a week on regular trash collection days, Sanitation will collect all food scraps (including fruit & vegetables, meat, bones, grains, and prepared foods), food-soiled paper, and yard trimmings.
Material collected as part of this program is managed locally and regionally. Organic waste composted locally is used by greening groups, such as urban famers, community gardeners, and street tree stewards, to rebuild the City’s soil.

Collection will start the week of June 8, 2015. Residents will receive information explaining the program, in the weeks prior to receiving the bins. Sanitation will provide pilot area homes with special organics bins that have a latching lid and wheels for your convenience.

Verrazano-Narrows Bridge upper level deck reconstruction
We are entering the next phase (which had been delayed by winter weather) wherein we start the old deck removal and new steel panel-by-panel installation that will require a lane closure 24/7. By using a moveable barrier full traffic lane capacity will be maintained for the morning and afternoon rush hours. Weather is a huge factor and the planned date of March 7th weekend into Monday, March 9th for our new traffic pattern is subject to change. There will be ample signage alerting drivers. Thank you for your patience as we improve and upgrade our 50-year-old bridge!

Details as follows:
As the V-N Bridge Upper Level replacement work moves into the roadway construction phase, a new traffic pattern is set to begin Saturday, March 7th with the demolition of the original 1960s-era roadway and installation of a lighter-weight, longer-lasting steel orthotropic deck. The work includes saw-cutting and removing the old roadway decking and installing 938 pre-fabricated deck panels using four overhead gantry cranes that can traverse all six lanes on the upper level of the bridge. Once the new deck panels are in place they are welded and bolted together, and a waterproofing membrane and asphalt overlay is applied.

A permanent lane closure will begin on Saturday, March 7 and continue through the summer of 2017 to allow contractors to demolish and replace the existing roadway. During the first phase of work, drivers seeking to access the Brooklyn-bound Belt Parkway ramp from the upper level in the morning must use the left hand lane of the bridge only, which will be a single lane located to the left of the construction work zone. There will be no direct Belt Parkway access from the center lane. Signs will be in place directing drivers into the dedicated lane.

NOTE: During the work, all current lanes of traffic will be maintained during peak weekday morning and afternoon drive times using a movable barrier that can be shifted to allow for flexibility. Weekday mornings, Monday through Friday, there will be three upper level lanes heading to Brooklyn from 5 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and three upper level lanes heading into Staten Island in the afternoon from 2:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday. On Fridays to better accommodate weekend traffic, there will be three lanes into Staten Island from 1 p.m. through midnight. The weekend configuration on the upper level will be three lanes heading into Staten Island and two lanes into Brooklyn. Drivers can also utilize the lower level of the bridge, which will also have three available lanes in each direction during peak traffic times. Additional lanes on both levels of the bridge may be closed to facilitate construction in off-peak travel times.

The five-year $235.7 million contract to replace the original upper level concrete deck with a lighter steel deck and construct a new seventh roadway lane to be used as a Bus/HOV lane, was awarded to Tutor Perini in December 2012. In addition, new sign structures, drainage and LED lighting will be added, among other upgrades.  (Revised: August 05, 2015)
