City officials and lawmakers broke ground recently on a $139-million project to upgrade and transform the streets and infrastructure of the rezoned Far Rockaway. The project, which will be completed in two phases, is expected to take three years, according to the New York City Economic Development Corporation.
Work will take place in an area of roughly 25 blocks, centered around the local business district and transportation hub at Mott and Central avenues, where a new library is already under construction. The project was designed and phased to closely align with more than 2,000 affordable housing units under construction and planned over several developments.
Along with rebuilding streets and upgrading storm and sanitary sewers, the project will also add a pedestrian plaza adjacent to the Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue subway station. The new plaza will cover about 15,000 square feet, and will include a stage for events.
