|The project is part of the citywide plan to improve the water supply |
The City of New York is working to update its water-supply system, including rebuilding and replacing miles of water mains in Manhattan. The project is extending to Lower Manhattan, where work will take place in north Tribeca around the Holland Tunnel rotunda, on Hudson and adjacent streets. In addition to the water trunk-main upgrade, the city will jointly coordinate infrastructure work with utility companies to improve electric, gas, and fiber-optic facilities.
Crews from the Department of Design and Construction, Department of Transportation, Con Edison, Empire City Subway, and other public-works companies launched the project in summer 2010.
