    New York State Department of Transportation Bridge Work

     


    86th St. – in Dyker Heights.

    (Near the P.C. Richard & Sons and a Ford Dealership) During this project, the bridge deck, bridge railing, and pedestrian fencing will be replaced. Immediate impact to local community:

    The contractor will occupy the south sidewalk/parking lane from Feb 6 through Feb 26.  This will be for localized painting and bridge bearing replacement prep work on the underside of the bridge structure. The contractor is putting up NO PARKING signs today, February 2nd. 

    Major Construction activity will commence this Spring. We will forward an updated schedule after the Contractor’s next progress meeting. 

    Overview of project:

    The design-build method employed on this project seeks to reduce that overall community impact as much as possible.

    Additional steps, such as using pre-cast concrete to replace the bridge decks, substantially

    lowers the overall construction time. The 86th St. bridge has parking lanes, and will lose those parking spaces intermittently throughout the job,  impacting the surrounding commercial spaces; most notably, the PC Richard & Sons adjacent to the 86th St. bridge. Anticipated Schedule:

    During the Spring of 2018,

    On 86th .St., the exit and entrance ramps used to get on to and off of the

    Gowanus Expressway (I-278) will be shut down for nearly three weeks.

    The construction methods employed by the Department should lead to a timely completion of this vitally important work.

    Raccoon Baiting in Brooklyn and Queens

    On September 7th the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Cornell University will install bait stations containing oral rabies vaccines in Brooklyn and Queens. The City has allowed the use of oral rabies vaccines on public properties. Bait stations will be installed in parks and other wooded areas. This will help vaccinate raccoons against rabies and does not pose a serious health risk for people or pets. The vaccine bait is a liquid contained in small packages that are the size of ketchup packets. People should not touch these bait packets. Touching the liquid vaccine could cause a rash. The bait is not harmful to pets and cannot cause rabies. If pets find it, do not try to take it away from them. For general questions about the Wildlife Oral Rabies Vaccination Program you can contact Cornell University at (607) 253-3060.

    DSNY Launches New Appointment Service to Schedule Large Bulk Pickups, Will Allow for More Timely Collections

    Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia today announced the official launch of a new and innovative appointment system designed to help DSNY more efficiently collect large non-recyclable bulky items such as sofas, mattresses, and large wooden furniture.< New Yorkers can now arrange for timely bulk pickup appointments online or by calling 311. “We’ve heard New Yorkers’ concerns regarding how to place out large bulky items for collection around the city,” said Commissioner Garcia. “Between July 2016 and June 2017, New Yorkers made nearly 90,000 calls to 311 to inquire about collection of large bulky items. Recognizing that we had implemented a hugely successful e-waste pickup program on Staten Island, we modeled our large bulky item collection service along the same principles,” she added. The new service is designed for items that are larger than four (4) feet by three (3) feet, such as sofas and bulky wooden furniture that can be lifted by two workers and be able to fit inside a Sanitation collection truck. “We always encourage New Yorkers to donate furniture and other items that they no longer want but that potentially can be reused by others,” said Commissioner Garcia. To find convenient donation centers and non-profit partners, visit the DonateNYC website. This service does not apply to items that require special handling, such as air conditioners, refrigerators, TVs, computers, and other electronics. To learn how to properly recycle or dispose of those items, visit the DSNY website or call 311. Also, metal, glass and rigid plastic items, including bedframes, patio furniture, and filing cabinets, should still be placed out for recycling collection after 4 p.m. the night before your scheduled recycling day. Some helpful tips:
    • Do not block foot traffic or place items in the street or in front of another property.
    • If you have more than six (6) large items for collection, schedule additional appointments.
    • Place your large items curbside after 4 pm the night before your appointment.
    • Mattresses/box springs should be placed in a plastic bag before setting out at curbside to prevent the spread of bed bugs and avoid a $100 fine.

    Notification from DSNY - Bulk Pick Up Changes in Community Board 10

    If you live in Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights or Fort Hamilton there are changes in Bulk Pick Up. The Department of Sanitation uses a dual-bin truck for trash and organics collection. Due to size limitations, bulk items larger than 4 feet by 3 feet cannot be collected using dual-bin trucks. If you are throwing out bulk items larger than 4 feet by 3 feet, such as mattresses, couches, or large pieces of furniture, etc., place them out after 4PM the evening before your last scheduled collection day of each week. These items will be collected by the end of day on Saturday.

    DSNY Reminder about placing garbage for pickup

    Reminder - all garbage and recycling must be placed curbside after 5:00 pm on the night before your scheduled pickup day. There are times when the Sanitation Department must alter their schedule and will possibly pick up on the overnight shift or in the very early hours of your scheduled pick up day.
