As reported last August 27, Con Ed temporarily suspended work on installation of the new Roosevelt Island high pressure gas line:
... Con Edison has temporarily suspended the work that crews had started earlier this month on Main Street, Roosevelt Island. After the initial excavation revealed some unanticipated conditions, Con Edison will revise its work plan and schedule....
...Work will be suspended thereafter until the revised work plan and new schedule are developed....
Apparently, Con Ed has developed a new schedule starting the day after Thanksgiving. According to Con Ed:
