Red Hook's Columbia Street Project Goes On and On and On

Columbia St One

The work on Columbia Street in Red Hook goes on. And on. And on. Our Carroll Gardens correspondent filed these photos in an email with the subject line "Columbia Street Wasteland." She writes of the construction work:
I know people on that block and the construction shakes their foundations. It's impossible to drive there, too. My friends are still waiting for at least a repaving. It sort of dropped off the radar when it shouldn't considering other waterfront issues.
Columbia Street hasn't been torn up forever, only for more than two years. The project started in October 2005 and it's slated to wrap up this spring. It has included installing new water mains, new sewer lines, new sidewalks, plus landscaping. In addition, part of the new Brooklyn Greenway is being built on Columbia Street.

This soprt of thing does seem to take forever for those impacted, but in all fairness this is a massive and urgently needed infrastructure project.

That sewer trunk line was long, long overdue.
