BPC: DID YOU KNOW? | CAISSON REPAIR WORK

Beginning Thursday, May 31, Battery Park City residents will notice two barges docked side-by-side in the river alongside Esplanade Plaza.

One barge, closest to the seawall, is continuing earlier work begun on the steel Sheet Pile Encasement Project. This initiative entails reinforcing, with concrete, the caissons that support the landfill BPC is built on against the waters of the Hudson. This preventive maintenance project is scheduled to run through early July 2017.

The second barge will be doing pile remediation work, the same as is currently underway in South Cove. That project is scheduled to conclude at the end of October 2017.
