This project will restore and enlarge the main (western) channel of the Bronx River around Forest Island, remove invasive species, and plant new trees in Bronx Park.

Due to COVID related impacts, this project may experience schedule delays. We will update the capital tracker as more information becomes available.

Project Update: The procurement completion date has changed. Some of the common reasons why a completion date has changed are: the vendor, project and/or contract documents are under review, the agency is securing additional funding to award, or it was in the City’s best interest to extend the bid opening date.
