Contractor performs drilling and grouting for foundation of Louise Nevelson Plaza

The City Department of Design and Construction is responsible for the reconstruction of Louise Nevelson Plaza as part of the Liberty Street Reconstruction project. The contractor is currently drilling and grouting the ground to form a solid base for the foundation of the park. The city plans to begin major foundation work in the Spring and hopefully the Louise Nevelson sculptures will be returned to the site in May. The current project schedule calls for substantial completion of the plaza by July 2010. The plaza will be decorated with seven fully-restored sculptures by Louise Nevelson that previously resided in the park. For more information on the park, visit: lowermanhattan.info.
