This project will reconstruct the East River Esplanade from East 68th Street to East 70th Street.

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.

We are currently soliciting bids for this project. If you are interested in submitting a bid on this project, you can find the documents on our Bid Solicitations page.
