BPCA continues work on the South Battery Park City Resiliency Project (SBPCR), an integrated coastal flood risk management system from the Museum of Jewish Heritage, across Wagner Park and Pier A Plaza, and along the northern border of the Historic Battery. SBPCR, along with the forthcoming North/West Battery Park City Resiliency Project, are part of the overall Lower Manhattan Coastal Resiliency Project, an integrated coastal protection initiative aimed at reducing flood risk due to coastal storms and sea level rise in Lower Manhattan.

This week, demolition work will ramp up significantly on the Wagner Park portion of the project site, during they regular citywide construction hours of 7AM-6PM. Pedestrian and vehicular access along Battery Place and surrounding streets will be maintained over the course of this work.
