The construction around Cooper Square and Lafayette St. will finally come to a close this winter as the city announces the completion of this major capital project. The reconstruction and replacement of essential Third Water Tunnel infrastructure beneath the road surface was the main goal of the project, although sewers, hydrants, and sidewalks were also tended to.
Some highlights of the work include:
Over 3,000 feet of new water mains installed
The replacement of the old vrick sewer system
50,000 square feet of new sidewalk
34 new fire hydrants
Updated gas and electric infrastructure
7 new sewer manholes
The installation of new pedestrian markings, crossings and bike lanes
