Construction has begun at the 86th Street overpass.

Preliminary construction has finally begun on the Gowanus Expressway overpass at 86th Street, with stage one of the project coming down the pipeline next week.

The project – which will include repairs to the bridge deck and bridge railing, as well as a replacement of the pedestrian fence – was originally slated to start in the spring.

There will be extensive delays and bus detours through the summer thanks to the project, warned Community Board 10 officials both in the group’s new online newsletter and at its June full board meeting. The construction, they said, will involve closing both the 86th Street entrance and exit ramps for three weeks.

Furthermore, they said, stages two and three of the project will take place in 24-hour, seven-day shifts, making for ‘round the clock construction.

Happening now are repairs to the north sidewalk and parking lane on 86th Street, which will take a maximum of five days and lead into stage one – the removal of the north sidewalk and southside parking lane, at which time the north parking lane will remain closed.

The project is funded by the New York State Department of Transportation. All traffic lanes are expected to be reopened by mid-August.

Notices of reroutes will be posted by the MTA.
