Lower Manhattan Construction

Message from the Borough Commissioner

Welcome to Lower Manhattan.

We hope that you find this webpage useful for information and communication on construction projects in Lower Manhattan including schedule updates on project, anticipated roadway closures and special events.

Our office is here to facilitate and coordinate construction projects in Lower Manhattan while minimizing related impacts to the residential and business community. We work with our sister city agencies (Department of Design and Construction, Department of Buildings, Department of Environmental Protection, and Parks) to coordinate enforcement and ensure compliance with safety. We work with the New York Police Department on enforcement for traffic violations such as double parking, bus idling and illegal parking, unauthorized lane and roadway closures. Our office also works with our major partners such as the Port Authority of NY & NJ, New York State Department of Transportation and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority on construction coordination issues. Our goal is to maintain pedestrian and traffic safety and the quality of life in Lower Manhattan while allowing construction to progress in a safe and expeditious manner.

If you have any questions, concerns, or issues to raise, please do not hesitate to contact us through the DOT Lower Manhattan weblink, 311 or through your Community Board.

Luis Sanchez, PE
Lower Manhattan Borough Commissioner
