National Grid Construction Notification
In the coming weeks, National Grid has planned construction in your district and this notification will provide information on the project. This work is required due to the pending replacement of existing municipal facilities (i.e., water, sewer, catch basins, sidewalks, etc.). If you seek additional information, please reference the following:
Construction due to: CAPITAL CONSTRUCTION
Billing Unit: 201
Reference Number: Encroachment
Community Board: 10
Scope: 51 ft
Typical Trench Width: 2 ft
Approx. Duration [days]: 30
Locations - 76th Street, 3rd Avenue and Ridge Boulevard
Typical Trench Width: 2 ft
Approx. Duration [days]: 90
Locations - 80th Street, 3rd Avenue and Ridge Boulevard
What to expect during construction:
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.
National Grid Dyker Heights infrastructure upgrades begin next week July 15, 2019.
National Grid has notified Community Board Ten that replacement of National Grid infrastructure will commence next week at the following locations:
1. 73rd Street between 12th Avenue and 14th Avenue
2. 13th Avenue Bay Ridge Parkway to 76 Street
3. 13th Avenue 72nd Street to 74th Street
This work is required due to the pending replacement of existing municipal facilities (i.e., water, sewer)
National Grid will be installing new infrastructure at the following locations in the upcoming weeks:
The intersection on 76th Street and 11th Avenue
Narrows Avenue between 79th Street and 78th Street
65th Street between Fort Hamilton Parkway and 13th Avenue

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.
This Friday, May 31st, we will launch our new fare payment system, OMNY, 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.
Welcome to OMNY
Where to Use OMNY: May 2019
How to Use OMNY: Contactless Cards
How to Use OMNY: Digital Wallets
Once again, MetroCard will remain in place until OMNY is available everywhere. The OMNY rollout will be complete in 2023.

Below is the website from the meeting:
During the day, all noisy activities would take place: Concrete sidewalk demolition with jackhammers (sawcutting has already been completed). The work will take place within the sidewalk area. In order to maintain pedestrian accessibility, a barricaded walkway in the street will be in place in addition to maintaining a reduced width on the sidewalk. The contractor will work with the business owners to maintain access to the street cellars.
The following would be performed at night within noise code:
Excavation for manhole and trench locations
-Installation of sheeting
-Setting of pipe and manholes
Doing this work at night will also reduce the impact to pedestrians. Noise mitigation measures will be in place as set up and approved by NYC Department of Environmental Protection.
The new rates are tiered and reflective of local neighborhood parking conditions including land use, density and parking demand. In Brooklyn increases will be between $.25 and $2.00/hour.
Details of the changes are posted on DOT's website: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dot/html/motorist/parking-rates.shtml
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.
