File Special Waivers for Holiday Construction Work Now
The New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) has issued the 2016 Holiday Construction Embargo for NYCDOT construction permits, which will be in effect on Friday, November 18, 2016 from 6am to 11:59pm and again from Monday, November 21, 2016 from 6am through Monday, January 2, 2017 at 11:59pm.
What does this mean for my project?
All roadway and sidewalk construction activities will be restricted during the embargo times on the streets listed on page 2 here.
Are there any exceptions?
Yes, you can file for a special waiver from the DOT Office of Construction Mitigation and Coordination (OCMC). Waiver requests must be filed between October 7, 2016 and November 11, 2016 either online via the NYCStreets Pre-Approvals menu or in the Permit Office by filing a “Request for Roadway/Sidewalk Permits During Embargo Periods” and supporting documentation. Waiver requests should only be submitted for critical reasons for a specific project.
