Image of Con Ed Gas Upgrade Work Schedule Updated 8/10

As previously reported:
Con Ed will soon begin removing the aging Roosevelt Island gas lines beneath Main Street and replacing them with High Pressure Gas Lines. At the same time, Roosevelt Landings, Island House and Westview will be doing building facade work. The combination of Con Ed Gas line upgrade, building facade work and Cornell Tech construction deliveries will make for a great deal of disruptions on Main Street....
Con Edison announced today:
Starting on Monday, August 10, Con Edison will begin upgrading gas infrastructure on Main Street in front of the Capobianco Field. Crews will be working from 9AM to 2:30 PM for the first five days, and then from 7PM to 7AM for the remainder of the project. This project is expected to be complete in the fall. Schedule is subject to change. We will continue to provide you with updates.

There will be no service disruptions to customers associated with this work.
Here is the site where Con Edison will begin work on Monday, August 10.
