The New York City Department of Transportation has just issued a memorandum on the upcoming 2018 Holiday Construction Embargo. The 2018 Holiday Construction Embargo runs from Thursday November 15th, 2018 to Wednesday January 2nd, 2019. During this period all routine work shall at locations within the embargo area will be suspended and no new work permits will be issued by NYC DOT.

Any ongoing projects must apply for a waiver to work within the Embargo period. In the coming weeks, RPO will issue notifications to our clients for whom we are obtaining DOT permits and we will apply for embargo waivers accordingly.

Please note, an embargo waiver request must be reviewed and approved by NYC DOT. NYC DOT reserves the right to modify existing permit stipulation and restrict certain operations for ongoing projects.

We would like to stress that NYC DOT will not issue any new permits during the embargo period. All permits needed during the holiday embargo should be requested no later than October 31st, 2018, but applying further in advance will yield a better likelihood of obtaining an embargo waiver for that work.
