    With over 250,000 people passing through Times Square each day, the only other space in New York City that comes close to that amount of foot traffic is on Main Street in Flushing, Queens. To reduce this congestion, DDC and the Department of Transportation (DOT) are teaming up to reconstruct the street and expand the sidewalk on four blocks of Main Street.

    The Spring Street Salt Shed, built in 2015 by the New York City Department of Design and Construction (DDC) for the New York City Department of Sanitation, is no ordinary salt storage area; it was selected by the Municipal Arts Society of New York along with an adjacent sanitation garage built by DDC as the winner of the Society’s 2016 MASterworks Award for Best New Building.
