Progress Update, Week of January 16th, 2023

During the week of January 16, the Gowanus Remediation Team (GRT) continued mobilizing for the RTA 1 Capping Operation. The Capping Operation will place a layer of new material along the bed of the canal within RTA 1. Capping is expected to continue through Spring 2024.

Pipe installation continued along the canal between the GRT staging area and RTA 1. This piping will be used to transport capping material to the work zone during the Capping Operation.

Soil grading was completed and sealant placement continued near the Union Street Bridge.

Mobilization continued at the new GRT staging area. Demobilization continued at the former GRT staging area.
