Massive Mess: 111-115 Montague Street Sidewalk Will Be In Tatters For 3 Months

While the massive hole in front of 200 Hicks Street and Montague continues to get wider, deeper and messier, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Beginning this week, the entire sidewalk from the Chinese Hand Laundry and McCurdy Real Estate at 111 Montague up to Subway sandwiches at 115—which also encompasses retailers Peerless Shoe Repair and Connecticut Muffin—will be torn to bits.

The superintendent for the Berkeley and Grosvenor apartment buildings at 111 & 115 Montague tells BHB that infrastructure work below the sidewalk will endure for a minimum of three months. Oh, joy!

    Are they installing a velodrome?

    I support the traffic calming measures the DOT is installing. Drivers need to slow down! If it takes a couple months to rearrange things do be it.

    Lou K, The work at the 111-115 buildings has nothing to do with the curb extensions. It is to replace the sidewalk vault that contains the boilers for the two buildings.

    I heard the excavation is being done to create a subterranean soundproof restaurant/bar for the Bossert.

    In september, notices were posted that scaffolding would go up on The Breukelen for 3 weeks for repointing work… In July, the scaffolding finally came down

    Hope the sidewalk work goes better, but not only will they get their infrastructure improved but 200 Hicks gets brand new sidewalk and nice new granite curbs – how tragic is this?
