Traffic controls are in place to direct traffic safely around the construction site.

Starting Friday, April 13, crews will begin constructing guide walls on the east side of 4th Street between Harrison and Bryant streets. Guide wall construction will involve excavation of a trench on 4th Street. This will be followed by minor concrete work. The guide walls will prepare the Central Subway alignment for construction of slurry walls and a launch box at the site where the tunnel boring machines will begin tunneling.

Guide wall construction is expected to last for approximately three weeks. Approved work hours are 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Access to 4th Street from Perry Street and Stillman Street may be briefly restricted, but advance notification will be provided to impacted residents and businesses should these closures be necessary. No detours are planned, and traffic controls will be in place. There may be an increase in truck traffic while this work is in progress.

Work to demolish and relocate utility lines remains in progress on this blockĀ and is expected to continue through May.
