As part of the City’s reconstruction of Fulton Street, the Department of Design and Construction is rebuilding Nassau Street from Ann Street to Beekman Street. The work consists of a full excavation of the roadbed as seen above. The contractor will remove all old materials, conduits and pipes and replace them with new materials. The City will also implement the standard Downtown Alliance Streetscape by installing new granite curbs and pouring new landmark gray sidewalks. The project will last until October, when the contractor moves on to the block of Nassau Street between Beekman and Spruce streets. The Lower Manhattan Development Corporation makes money available to businesses whose sales decrease because of construction.
