Construction of East River Park will continue to be phased so that a minimum of 42% of open space will be available to the community throughout construction to minimize the loss of park space.
The first phase of construction closures began on December 6, 2021. See the map above for current closures and view a more detailed PA1 Access Plan for more on pedestrian circulation and amenities. See Advisories and Bulletins for current construction activities.
