Temporary Two Way Streets

As noted on Monday, there’s no parking on Dock Street and is a temporary two way street while the Water Street construction is being done. Brownstoner noted that the Belgian blocks on Dock Street got spray painted with a double yellow line today. Both Dock Street and Water Street between Old Fulton Street and Dock Street are temporarily two way streets. We contacted Paul Kidder, the DCC Community Construction Liaison who told us that:

Water street will not be closed at Old Fulton Street and Dock Street. The contractors plan is to work from the bend on Water Street to Dock Street, May through July and there will be an emergency lane maintained for traffic on Water Street. Water Street will remain a one way street as it is today. A special note: Dock Street as of this past Tuesday is now a two way Street. The project is still fairly close to schedule at this time. As far as I know Water Street from Old Fulton to the bend on Water Street will remain a two way street as it always was. The contractor is in the process of cleaning up Old Fulton Street and Furman Street for the annual Bike Tour on May 2nd.
