Road construction begins on Monday September 15.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) will begin a resurfacing project on the 72nd Street Cross Drive in Central Park on Monday, September 15 at approximately 9:00 pm.

DOT crews will strip the surface of the drive from the 72nd Street entrance at 5th Avenue to the Bethesda Arcade Monday night into Tuesday morning. They will then pave the surface of the drive Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

There will be rough road on the Cross Drive and on the East Drive at 72nd Street on Tuesday, September 16. Please proceed with caution.

DOT will return to the Park the week of September 22 to complete the work on the west side of the Cross Drive.

Thanks you for your interest in Central Park.
