The secant pile drilling has begun in earnest and the progress is coming along just as scheduled. We do understand that there have been some concerns over the noise and vibrations that may be occurring due to the activities and do understand this inconvenience. The contractor is doing all that they can to limit any disturbances, but please be aware that as with any construction activities whether on your neighbor’s home or on a project such as this, these disturbances are not outside what can be reasonably expected.
Please keep in mind the that sidewalk is still closed on the west side of East 156th Street due to the ongoing activities within the fenced in area, but the sidewalk will be replaced in the future once all the heavy construction traffic is complete. Also there may be short durations of traffic rerouting to allow for construction activities for the safety of the residents and the crews. Any interruption will be kept short as possible.
