Crossing East Houston

[Click to go big]

Although the East Houston Reconstruction project, already three years behind schedule, has been delayed again, there are some spots where work has mostly wrapped up... like at the East Houston/First Avenue/Allen Street intersection.

The markings are on the roadway for the crosswalks and bike lanes, as the above photo by Vinny & O shows.

The Department of Design and Construction has been replacing sewers, water mains, catch basins, fire hydrants, sidewalks, etc., etc., along East Houston Street, from the Bowery to the FDR Drive. This work phase started in June 2010. Spring 2017 is the new completion date. Do I hear summer 2017?

Off topic but it seems that the filming season is upon us. Does anyone know if a film company can film at night on the street in a residential area between the hours of 10 pm. to 4 am.?

We'll all soon have flying cars and all this will be for naught.

@1:21 AM,
Yes they can. Last week a production called "The Breaks" filmed on 2nd Ave between 7th/St. Marks and they started around 8:00 PM and finished at 3:00 AMish.

How confusing are these markings?
