Since becoming an amalgamated Municipality in 1996, Region of Queens Municipality has been able to invest approximately $70 million in capital upgrades to our infrastructure throughout Queens County that has helped our environment, provide safe streets, sidewalks, and drinking water, as well as quality recreational facilities. We are proud of the work that has been completed over the past 21 years and that work will continue in 2018-2019.
Work will begin on Monday, June 4, 2018, continuing the Brooklyn Water and Sewer Project from the corner of Brooklyn Shore Road and Markland Avenue for 600 feet to 85 Brooklyn Shore Road. The project involves installation of water and sewer pipes and a sewer pump station to be located at Brooklyn Waterfront Park; the work is expected to take place throughout the spring and conclude in early autumn. As a result of the construction, the section of Brooklyn Shore Road from Markland Avenue to Brooklyn Waterfront Park will be closed to all vehicular traffic; pedestrians will have access through the area as practical and reasonable during the construction period. Region of Queens staff has met with property owners and residents of the area to discuss the project, and to mitigate potential negative impacts from the project.
Motorists are advised to plan their routes accordingly. The patience and understanding of the public is appreciated during the construction period.
