Verrazano-Narrows Bridge Upper-Level Replacement Project Enters New Stage of Roadway Construction
New Traffic Shift Begins Saturday, August 29;
Changes Maintain Current Traffic Capacity

Starting Saturday morning, August 29, MTA Bridges and Tunnels will move into the next stage of construction work in the $235.7 million Verrazano-Narrows Bridge upper level deck replacement project. Upper-level lane closures in both directions will be necessary on Friday night, August 28, to allow for the transition.

All current lanes of traffic will continue to be maintained during peak weekday morning and afternoon drive times using a moveable barrier. A reduced stretch of isolated lane traffic — known as a “cattle chute” — will be in use on the Brooklyn-bound side during morning rush hours, and a similar lane formation will be in use on the Staten Island-bound side in the afternoon.

As with the previous construction stage, from Monday through Friday, three lanes to Brooklyn will be open from 5 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Three lanes to Staten Island will be open in the afternoon from 2:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

To better accommodate weekend traffic, on Fridays three lanes into Staten Island will be open from 1 p.m. through midnight. Weekend configuration on the upper level will have three Staten Island-bound lanes and two Brooklyn-bound lanes. As before, drivers who need to access the Belt Parkway’s Brooklyn-bound ramp from the upper level in the morning must use the left-hand lane of the bridge only. Signs are in place to direct drivers to the dedicated lane.

Drivers can also utilize the lower level of the bridge, which will have three available lanes in each direction during peak traffic times. Additional lanes on both levels may be closed to facilitate construction during off-peak travel times.

The upper-level staged roadway construction that began in March will continue through summer 2017.  (Posted: August 27, 2015)

Verrazano Narrows Bridge Belt Parkway Approach Ramp new traffic pattern
REMINDER:
New Traffic Pattern In Place For Motorists Using Verrazano-Narrows Bridge Belt Parkway Approach Ramp To Staten Island-Bound Lower Level

A new traffic pattern is in place for motorists who want to access the Staten Island-bound Belt Parkway connector ramp to the bridge’s lower level. Beginning, Wed., July 22, motorists who want to use the local Bay Street and Lily Pond Avenue exits and lower level of the bridge must use the right lane rather than the left lane as it was under the old traffic pattern.

Under this permanent change, drivers will access the lower level of the bridge heading into Staten Island using the right lane and drivers using the upper level of the bridge will stay in the left lane.

Both westbound Belt Parkway connector ramps are being reconstructed under an $84.3 million project that is also building a new ramp that will eventually connect to the bus and High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane on the Gowanus Expressway.

Electronic and fixed signs will be in place advising drivers about the new traffic pattern.  (Revised: August 18, 2015)
 
Tips From Con Edison
SUMMER ‘STICKING’ AROUND

Keep Cool and Save Energy with Some Simple Tips

With high temperatures and humidity expected to stick with New Yorkers the next few days, Con Edison reminds customers to stay safe, stay comfortable and watch their energy usage. Here are some simple tips.

1. Set your AC to the highest comfortable temperature. Every degree you lower the thermostat drives up your bill by 6 percent.
2. To reduce heat and moisture in your home, run appliances such as ovens, washing machines, dryers and dishwashers in the early morning or late at night when it’s cooler outside.
3. Cook with a microwave, or barbecue.
4. When the AC is running, close doors to keep cool air in and hot air out. Shop owners are reminded not to keep front doors open while running air conditioning inside. This wastes energy and puts a strain on the grid.
5. Keep shades, blinds and curtains closed. About 40 percent of unwanted heat comes through windows.
6. Use ceiling fans instead of your AC, if possible. Ceiling fans use less energy.
7. Turn off AC units, lights and other appliances when not at home and use a timer or smart technology to turn on your AC before arriving home.
8. Replace old appliances with new energy efficient Energy Star appliances.

Con Edison offers a variety of energy-efficiency programs for this summer. The coolNYC program connects customers with smart technology to control their room air conditioners from their computer or mobile device. Customers whose air conditioners are not Wi-Fi-enabled can buy a smart AC kit or borrow one for free and keep it if they participate in at least three heat events. Customers with Wi-Fi-connected Friedrich Kühl or Frigidaire Cool-Connect units can enroll these Energy Star ACs and earn up to $125 in rewards. Learn more by visiting: www.coolnycprogram.com

Replacing an old air conditioner with a new Energy Star unit can reduce energy usage by 15 percent. Con Edison will pay a $20 rebate to customers who buy a new Energy Star air conditioner.

Customers can report outages and check service restoration status at www.conEd.com or by calling 1-800-75-CONED (1-800-752-6633). When reporting an outage, customers should have their Con Edison account number available, if possible, and report whether their neighbors also have lost power.

Customers who report outages will be called by Con Edison with their estimated restoration times as they become available.

Also, download Con Edison’s new free iPhone and Android app, My conEdison, to report and check the status of a power problem, and view the company’s interactive online outage map.  (Posted: August 18, 2015)

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)

TrafficStat - A Reality!
Good news: Accident and summons data is now available to the public for the first time on the New York City Police Department's website, thanks to Local Law 12 of 2011, sponsored by Council Member Jessica Lappin.
The crash data, which includes the number of moving violation summonses, the number of traffic crashes, and the number of injuries and fatalities citywide and by borough, can be found at http://www.nyc.gov/html/nypd/html/traffic_reports/motor_vehicle_accident_data.shtml.
The summons data can be found at http://www.nyc.gov/html/nypd/html/traffic_reports/traffic_summons_reports.shtml.
Having this data available online to the public will help with better solutions to the many traffic and pedestrian safety issues affecting many of our communities. Armed with this information, the streets can be made safer for everyone.

Safe Stop Program
The Kings County District Attorney's Office created the Safe Stop Program, which partners with local merchants (at no cost) to provide a safe place for youth, seniors and all others to go if they need help in case of an emergency. If someone is lost, has a medical emergency, or is a crime victim, they can go into any Safe Stop location where merchants will have information and resources for those who need help. Participants of Safe Stop will display decals in their store windows identifying them as a designated Safe Stop location. For more information on how to get involved in the Safe Stop Program, please contact the DA's office at 718-250-2000.  (Revised: May 08, 2014)
