NYC DOT 2019 HOLIDAY CONSTRUCTION EMBARGO NOTIFICATION
A Department of Transportation Holiday Construction Embargo shall be in effect from 6:00 am Friday, November 15th through 11:59 pm Thursday, January 2nd. During this time, only emergency work may be performed provided an emergency number is received from the New York City Department of Transportation unless specific permission to work during the embargo is obtained prior to that time. Any non-emergency permits issued prior to the date of this notice shall be considered to be suspended unless special permission is granted. Utility cover openings will also be restricted unless an emergency authorization number is obtained from the Department of Transportation. There will be strict enforcement of this embargo with non-compliance resulting in violations, stop work orders and revocation of permits.
Please note, the deadline for submission of requests to work during the Holiday Embargo period, is Thursday, October 31, 2019, but we strongly advise applying as far in advance as possible.
We will automatically apply for permission to work during the construction embargo for all clients we obtain DOT permits for in the affected areas.
