Raccoon Baiting in Brooklyn and Queens

Top of Form

Bottom of Form

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) 253-3968.

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 at nyc.gov/bulk 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 nyc.gov/donate.  

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 nyc.gov/dsny 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.

WESTBOUND HOV LANE ON VZ BRIDGE WILL OPEN ON SEPT. 5TH

The westbound operation of the reversible HOV/Bus lane on the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge will commence on Tuesday, September 5, 2017. The lane will operate in concert with the State’s Gowanus/BQE new westbound operation in Brooklyn, which starts on the Gowanus Expressway a short distance west of the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel. The eastbound HOV/Bus operation over the V-N Bridge started on June 22nd, and travel time has been reduced for morning commutes via that lane as a result. More details are below in the Press Release issued by the Governor’s Office. 

 

GOVERNOR CUOMO ANNOUNCES HOV/BUS LANE TO OPEN WESTBOUND ON VERRAZANO-NARROWS BRIDGE REDUCING TRAVEL TIME AND IMPROVING ENVIRONMENT

 

New Lane Will Provide Seamless Route From the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel to Staten Island

 

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that on Tuesday, September 5, an HOV/Bus lane will open on the Upper Level westbound (Staten Island-bound) direction of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, completing a seamless route from Manhattan to Staten Island for users of the special lane, which reduces travel time and helps the environment. The reversible seventh lane of traffic will transition from eastbound to westbound to accommodate the afternoon/evening rush hours and will connect HOV/Bus lanes on the Gowanus/Brooklyn-Queens Expressway to the Staten Island Expressway, improving travel times for HOV/Bus commuters heading home to Staten Island.

 

The eastbound (to Brooklyn and Manhattan/Queens/Long Island) HOV/Bus lane opened ahead of schedule on June 22, and has reduced travel time during the morning rush from the bridge to the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel, providing commuters with a more efficient and reliable commute. By reducing idling and encouraging carpooling and bus use, the HOB/Bus lane also helps reduce carbon emissions that are harmful for the environment. The daily reversal of the lane is managed in conjunction with the NYS Department of Transportation, which operates the BQE/Gowanus and Staten Island Expressway HOV/Bus lanes.

 

"The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge is a vital transportation artery for residents of Staten Island, and HOV lanes on the bridge will help alleviate congestion and streamline travel for commuters traveling between Staten Island and the rest of the city," Governor Cuomo said. "The opening of HOV lanes combined with the transition to Cashless Tolling furthers New York's ongoing efforts to transform our transportation infrastructure to meet the needs of 21st century travelers, while providing efficient commutes for generations to come."

 

"Having an HOV/Bus lane open in both directions on the bridge is a great benefit to all who use it," said Cedrick T. Fulton, President of MTA Bridges and Tunnels. "HOV users and Bus riders now have a seamless, continuous route to the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel from Staten Island in the morning, and back in the afternoon, saving people time and improving the rush hour traffic flow daily. And every commuter who chooses to carpool or take a bus over driving alone is helping the environment by reducing their carbon footprint."

 

The construction of the Verrazano's new reversible HOV/Bus lane is part of the larger $235.7 million Verrazano-Narrows Bridge upper level deck project, which replaced the original 1960s-era roadway with a lighter-weight, longer-lasting steel deck. In addition to the new roadway, new sign structures have been added, finger joint systems at the anchorages and towers rehabilitated, and new drainage and energy efficient roadway lighting installed.

 

The Verrazano Bridge converted to Cashless Tolling on July 8. Now, westbound (to Staten Island) customers drive under gantries without stopping and their E-ZPass accounts are automatically charged, and vehicles without E-ZPass have their license plate recorded and a bill is mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. E-ZPass tags should be mounted inside the vehicle's front windshield.  

COAT DRIVE

From now until Sept. 30th the DSNY Columbia Association is partnering with Investors Bank to collect new or gently used coats to distribute throughout the area.  Please see the flyer below for complete details.

NATIONAL GRID PLANNED CONSTRUCTION WORK

In the coming weeks National Grid has planned construction to improve the reliability of its gas system.  Work is scheduled to take place at the following locations:

On Bay Ridge Parkway between 4th and 5th Avenue

On 5th Avenue between Bay Ridge Parkway and 76th Street

On 5th Avenue between Bay Ridge Parkway and 74th Street

Typically, work performed by National Grid will begin with the installation of new gas pipe either in the street or sidewalk.  The excavation required will be backfilled at the end of each day.  Steel plates will be used to cover any excavations left open
   
    allow vehicular traffic, and provide access to driveways, steps, and walkways.
                     
    The entire work area will be kept clean and orderly, and attempts will be made to keep noise, dust, and debris to a minimum.  All material required on site will be stored neatly in designated areas.
   
   
                     
    All or part of your gas service may have to be replaced.  In order to complete this work, we must gain access to your home at the point where the service enters the building (basement, crawlspace, etc.).  If this is the case, you will be contacted by a
   
    National Grid representative to make an appointment.
                     
                     
                     
    Some excavations may need to remain open until all gas services have been transferred, at which point the old main will be retired and the openings backfilled.
   
   
    All street & sidewalk surfaces affected by the construction will be repaved to ensure a smooth surface.  Temporary asphalt pavement will be used until all National Grid work is complete and permanent restoration can be performed.
 
   
    Concrete openings should be restored within 21 days, with the exception of work done in mid-winter.  Some delays may occur due to inclement weather or when the temperature is too cold to pour concrete.

Traffic Pattern Shift at Verrazano-Narrows Bridge Staten Island-bound Toll Plaza

Starting this weekend, a change in traffic pattern will be in place on the westbound (to Staten Island) toll plaza coming off the Upper and Lower Levels of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. The change is necessary to accommodate the next stage of work for installation of the Cashless Tolling structures and associated systems. 

As with the previous stage, several toll lanes will be closed at a time to accommodate the work zone activity. All lanes on the upper and lower levels of the bridge itself will be maintained during peak hours.

Work includes roadway replacement, demolition, excavation and concrete placement, as well as electrical and drainage systems and new signage. Cashless Toll collection is set to start in the summer of 2017 at the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.

Motorists are advised to allow additional travel time. 

Motorists can sign up for MTA e-mail or text alerts at www.mta.info and check the Bridges and Tunnels homepage or Facebook page for the latest information on this planned work.

MTA Bridges & Tunnel Notification of work on the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge

The start of toll plaza construction activities in the Upper Level westbound toll plaza will begin on Tuesday, January 10th.  This work requires a barricaded work zone to set up the systems and ganrty structures necessary for future Cashless Tolling conversion at the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, set for summer 2017.  The prep work is scheduled to start Tuesday, January 10th and will continue through June, in advance of the switch to Cashless. The MTA Bridge team will be monitoring traffic and safety, and doing everything possible to mitigate any traffic issues.  Work will also include replacement of concrete pavement, new drainage, etc.

The work area will initially be located in the westbound plaza far left toll lanes (two-to-three toll lanes in the first stage).  The area will be reconstructed in stages to maintain optimal traffic flow.  After a standard period of motorist adjustment to the new traffic pattern shift we can expect moderate impact; that said, note that there will be no construction on the eastbound (to Bklyn) side to impact the morning rush; work is westbound only.  Also, there is no loss in traffic lanes on the bridge span itself for peak periods -just the toll plaza area where the gantry structure will eventually go.  The exception, of course, is the ongoing Upper Level deck reconstruction that requires a permanent lane closure in the off-peak direction (project progressing well and on schedule).

The MTA will continue to provide updates in the coming weeks and months about Cashless Tolling, which allows more efficient and safe traffic flow (no more merging or crossing over to choose a toll payment lane) and is better for the environment, as drivers no longer wait to pay cash or get stuck behind vehicles with E-ZPass issues.

Cable Excavation Work in Community Board Ten

JEK Communications, Inc. has been retained by"Cablevision of New York" to perform excavation of the existing cable television system on 64th Street between 7th Avenue and 8th Avenue.  The work will begin no more than 3 days from this notification.  Work will be performed 1-7 days and all work completed will be restored to its original state prior to work start.

Important News from the MTA - NYC Transit - N Line Construction

As you know, in January of this year NYCTransit started a 48 month construction project to renew nine stations along the Sea Beach N Line in Brooklyn from 8th Avenue to 86th Street. Over the past year we have been in the preliminary construction phase prepping for the major work that will start next month, January 2016.

Phase I of the project will see major construction work on the Manhattan-bound station platforms, platform walls, stairs, etc. In order to safely and efficiently perform this work track access is necessary. Starting Monday, January 18, 2016, Manhattan-bound platforms at all nine (9) stations will be out of service for 14 months. There will be temporary platforms at the 8th Avenue and Bay Parkway stations. To access the Fort Hamilton Parkway, New Utrecht Ave, 18th Ave, 2nd Ave, Kings Highway, Avenue U and 86th Street stations while platforms are under constructions, customers will need to back-ride using the temporary platforms at 8th Avenue and Bay Parkway or travel to Stillwell Terminal.

Customer Service Notices and take-ones will be going out into stations and trains, announcements on trains and in Stations, as well as social media outlets in the weeks before the January 18 start date. (Posted: January 07, 2016)
