On Monday, May 22, 2017 construction began on 6th Avenue and 58th Street. Currently, the east side of 6th Avenue, including the sidewalk, is closed from 55th Street to Library Park. The west side of 6th Avenue remains open for one-way, southbound traffic and parking. While construction will not be completed block by block, the contractor is generally working from north to south.
Additionally, the north side of 58th Street, including the sidewalk, is closed from 7th Avenue to 3rd Avenue. The south side of 58th Street remains open for one-way, eastbound traffic and parking. While construction will not be completed block by block, the contractor is generally working from west to east.
Although some sidewalks are closed, access to all businesses will remain open during construction.

Additional updates will be posted here as they arise.
On Thursday, July 6 the intersection of 6th Avenue/6th Avenue A at 59th Street will be closed for a portion of the day in order to perform pavement patching. Additionally, 6th Avenue at 60th Street will be closed for a portion of that day for the same reason. The contractor will not be allowed to have both 59th Street and 60th Street closed at the same time.
The week of June 26th the contractor will begin pouring curb and gutter along 6th Avenue. They will start at 55th Street and work to the south.
Following the curb and gutter, concrete will be poured against the buildings to establish a consistent concrete pad for the rest of the walk to match. This will allow the contractor to bridge the gap area with plywood, allowing businesses to stay open and clientele to navigate to business entrances. Once the pad is complete, light pole bases will be poured and then the contractor will begin pouring the sidewalk.
For the next couple of weeks there may be periodic, short-term closures of 58th Street.
