Safety Improvements Continue 
Gowanus and VZ Bridge Deck Replacement Projects

MTA Bridges and Tunnels provided an update on the two active safety improvement construction projects. 


The Gowanus project involves widening the approach to the Fort Hamilton Parkway exit. Construction is now exclusively taking place behind barriers and all work was shifted to daytime hours, Monday through Friday. The drilling work will be noise-producing but will be limited to the daytime only for the next several weeks. 

 

The deck replacement and concrete repair work above the Fort Hamilton Parkway/Belt Parkway on-ramp has now shifted to overnight hours due to the rising traffic volume resulting from the Phase 1 NYC reopening that took place this week on Monday, June 8th.  Unfortunately there will be noise-producing work on the overnights, Monday through Friday for the next few weeks. The good news is that this project is moving ahead of schedule due to the extra work already completed when traffic was much lighter at the height of the COVID-19 shutdown. 


Verrazzano Narrows Bridge Replacement

Scope
  • Replace original 1960s concrete deck
  • Strengthen steel superstructure and upgrade load requirements to current standards for heavy trucks

Online Marriage Licenses

All couples who want to get married in New York State must obtain a Marriage License. Prior to Executive Order No. 202.20, signed by Governor Cuomo, the law required that New Yorkers complete the process of obtaining a marriage license in person. This reequirement was waived. The new system will allow couples to virtually schedule and attend an appointment with the City Clerk's office, securely upload required documents for the marriage license to the City Clerk's office, and upload the signed license for submission to the City Clerk once the ceremony is complete. 

The system is expected to go live in the first week of May. New Yorkers who would like to obtain a marriage license will soon be able to do so by visiting nyc.gov/Cupid or cityclerk.nyc.gov.

NYPD Crime Prevention Division Info on Senior Scams

OMNY Payment Information:

Please keep in mind that if you are using the OMNY payment system on the Staten Island buses or the Lexington line, you will not receive a free transfer to another bus line or subway entrance as you would if you had used a MetroCard as payment.  Other bus lines and subway stations are not yet equipped with OMNY technology, so you would have to pay another fare with your MetroCard if you are transferring.

Please see the information below regarding MTA's new OMNY Fare Payment System, which is being rolled out on May 31st for Staten Island buses and Lexington line 4, 5 & 6 trains.  This affects Staten Island bound buses leaving from the Community Board 10 area.  MetroCards will still be accepted until OMNY is completely in place throughout the entire MTA system (expected 2023).

Please take a moment to view the videos to familiarize yourself with the new payment system.

Friday, May 31st, the new fare payment system, OMNY, was launched on all Staten Island buses and the Lexington Line 456 trains (between 42nd Street-Grand Central and Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center stations).

In southern Brooklyn, this means that the S53, S93, and the S79-SBS will all take OMNY payments (for Full Fare and Pay-Per-Ride). Customers will still be able to use MetroCards.

In preparation for the launch, we’ve put together informational videos on where and how to use OMNY. You can view all four videos by using the links below. You can also visit the OMNY website for more information and updates.
