Besides tomorrow marking the start of a new year, a fraudulent start to a decade, it will also mark the inauguration of NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg. While this inauguration should legally not involve him, I will look past that & report the transit news involving it. As one would expect, the inauguration will affect bus & potentially subway service in the area. Here are the details hot off the press from MTA NYC Transit:
The Inaugural Ceremony for Mayor Michael Bloomberg is scheduled for Friday, January 1, 2010 at City Hall between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. As a result, Broadway between Chambers and Vesey Streets will be closed to traffic by the New York City Police Department. While we have been informed that buses will likely be let through the area, they will not make regularly scheduled stops between Chambers and Vesey Streets. Also, the buses will experience delays, since they will be inspected before being allowed through. Local and express bus routes likely to be affected are:
M6, M22, M103, X1, X10, X17, X27 and X28
In addition, some entrance/exits in the City Hall R and Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall 456 may be temporarily closed during the ceremony by the NYPD.
