EAST SIDE COASTAL RESILIENCY PROJECT TO CLOSE 60% OF EAST RIVER PARK STARTING NOVEMBER 2020

The City has announced that ESCR is still scheduled to begin in Fall 2020, with early work in September and East River Park section closures — totaling 60% of the park — planned for November. Although the city has devastating budget shortfalls that could affect both construction and planned mitigations, to date no funding cuts or spending delays have been announced for ESCR.
