Progress Update, Week of September 20, 2021

During the week of September 20 the Gowanus Remediation Team continued removing sediment near the east side of the Union Street Bridge. Sediment is being removed using a vacuum truck staged on the deck of the bridge.

This week the GRT began removal of an obsolete cofferdam structure located in the canal near Douglass Street. This structure is being removed using a crane staged upland on Douglass Street. There will be a partial road closure in place at the dead end of Douglass Street near the bulkhead and will extend for seventy five (75) feet west toward Bond Street. When the closure is in place the roadway and sidewalks within the work zone will be inaccessible to vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

Photos of construction activities are provided below.
