Updated and clarified...
I'm reminded that, yes, such utility work that does not close streets has in fact been announced in the past.
"I am aware of the non-noticed, short term street closure that are creating parking lot situations on Block 1129, and it's not OK for me to just say that's Con Ed, so I’m coming to say I’m going to try to do better on that," Cotton said.
"Is there a sense of how long it’s going to take?" she was asked.
"It’s not my work, I have no idea," Cotton responded.
I asked for clarification, if this was not Con Ed work to facilitate the construction of Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park.
"There’s a million things going on out there," Cotton responded. "Some of it I know for sure [is their project], some of it not... I would never say that the work out there is 100% not our project."
