As a result, all routine work shall be suspended during the embargo period unless approval for the work is granted by the New York City Department of Transportation’s (NYCDOT) Office of Construction Mitigation and Coordination (OCMC). Such suspension shall not apply to emergency work for which an emergency number is obtained by the permittee pursuant to the provisions of section 2-11 of NYCDOT’s Highway Rules.

It shall be a violation of NYCDOT’s Highway Rules to perform any work on the street during this embargo period without the prior approval of OCMC or the receipt of an emergency number. NYCDOT will strictly enforce this embargo and violators are subject to penalties.
