Just a short while ago the MTA issued a press release to announce the reopening of Dey Street to vehicular traffic.
MTA is pleased to announce that Dey Street, between Broadway and Church Street, is being reopened today to vehicular traffic. The reopening of the street will benefit local merchants, businesses and residents just in time for the holiday season.
This section of Dey Street in Lower Manhattan has been closed to vehicular traffic since October 2005 to accommodate excavation and construction of an underground pedestrian concourse that will provide a direct connection between the new Transit Center and the World Trade Center PATH station. While the underground work for the Transit Center continues, the surface work on Dey Street has been completed.
“The completion of the structural box of the Dey Street underground pedestrian concourse is a significant milestone for the Fulton Street Transit Center project,” said MTA Capital Construction President, Dr. Michael Horodniceanu. “The cooperation we encountered from local businesses and residents during construction has been a key ingredient to its successful completion.”
