Traffic
 
  Week-long Traffic Shift on Fulton at Pearl
  Starting Monday, September 12th, the city DDC will shift traffic to the south side of Fulton Street between Cliff and Pearl Streets. The shift allows crews to excavate the north-side roadway and install a concrete road base. The change in traffic pattern will be in place approximately one week, through Friday, September 16th, with crews working normal weekday hours.
  180 Broadway Demolition Complete
  At the site of the future Pace University dormitory, demolition of 180-182 Broadway at the southeast corner of John Street concluded in late August. Crews are now clearing remaining debris from the site, with foundation construction upcoming through approximately December 2012.
  Bike and Walkway Switch Manhattan Bridge Paths
  On July 18, 2011, bicyclists and pedestrians will trade paths on the Manhattan Bridge. This temporary detour is necessary to maintain separate biking and walking paths during construction along the north side. Cyclists will use the south path and pedestrians will use the north path of the bridge, which is covered with construction sheds. The path reversal will be in place through approximately January 2012. The city DOT is implementing a detour to the bridge during the reversal.
  Brooklyn Bridge Closures and Traffic Reductions
  Overnight closures of the Brooklyn Bridge Manhattan-bound roadway are in place weeknights from approximately 11pm to 6am daily, in order for crews to continue rehabilitation work. The city DOT will maintain Brooklyn-bound traffic under the contra-flow plan, with Brooklyn-bound traffic traveling in the normally Manhattan-bound lanes. (No work over holiday weekends.)

Air Monitoring
 
  City Focuses on Construction Noise Mitigation
  With more than 60 rebuilding projects underway south of Canal Street, Lower Manhattan has experienced plenty of challenges arising from heavy construction. To help mitigate one of the primary issues -- noise -- the city Department of Environmental Protection recently shared some of its regulations and strategies at a LMCCC stakeholders meeting.
  Air Monitoring Reports Made Easier to Read
  The air-monitoring page of LowerManhattan.info was relaunched this month, with quick-reference daily summaries of the local air-quality index by location. Particulate-matter concentrations are listed for each of the four LMCCC air-monitor sites, which form a quadrangle from river to river. The chart also notes wind speed and direction, as well as daily temperatures and air pressure. To compare previous days readings, a date box with calendar is viewable at the top of the page.
  LMCCC Air Monitoring Program
  The LMCCC has implemented an air quality monitoring program to monitor the cumulative impact of all Lower Manhattan construction projects. The LMCCC is conducting daily air monitoring at the following sites throughout Lower Manhattan: 292 Greenwich Street, 80 Catherine Street, 1 World Financial Center and 154 Nassau Street.

Rebuilding
 
  Peck Slip Road and Utility Reconstruction Started August 1st
  On August 1st, work began at the northwest corner of Peck Slip and South Street. The project is part of the city reconstruction of Peck Slip, expected to take four years, through approximately winter 2016, and include new park construction on the east end. Crews will work regular weekday hours, with extended hours as necessary to remain on schedule. Vehicular and pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the project.
  East River Waterfront Pilot Section Opens
  The first section of the new East River Waterfront opened July 14th, bringing a landscaped esplanade, seating and lounge chairs, game tables, and dog park to the downtown community. Part of a $165 million project, the segment is the first to revitalize a two-mile stretch of waterfront land from the tip of Lower Manhattan, to East River Park north of the Manhattan Bridge.
