The anchorages on the Brooklyn side of the Brooklyn Bridge are to be sandblasted to remove lead paint. The work is slated to begin tomorrow, and will not affect existing traffic patterns, according the the Community Outreach for the Brooklyn Bridge Rehabilitation.
This from the construction bulletin:
All painting work is being conducted in accordance to the US Environmental Protection Act and NYS Department of Environmental Conservation requirements. Dust collection, vacuum and recycling units are being employed to minimize environmental air quality risks, and there is continuous air monitoring during operations. Noise generated by these units conforms to the NYC Noise Code standards adopted in 2007. Visit the website of the Department of Environmental Protection for more information.
Far more information, or to be added to the notification list for closures or other traffic changes, please contact Sabrina Lau, the Brooklyn Bridge Community Liaison, at 347-647-0876 or firstname.lastname@example.org
