Progress Update, Week of May 9th, 2022

During the week of May 2 the Gowanus Remediation Team (GRT) completed Phase 2 dredging near the Union Street Bridge. Sediment was raked following the completion of dredging activities.

At Degraw Street workers continued cutting drainage holes, installing a filtration system, and restoring the roadway. A closure sheet was installed and sealant was applied at the new bulkhead. A partial street closure will remain in place on Degraw Street between Bond Street and the Gowanus Canal while this work is ongoing.

Photos of construction activities are provided below.
