Due to a bike lane painting project happening later this week on East 20th Street, parking will be temporarily suspended along the street.
The announcement was first made via an email blast from StuyTown Property Services on Monday evening after management was made aware of the project.
“We do not have an exact date yet but are expecting the work to be started later this week,” general manager Rick Hayduk said in the email. “Signage is being posted along 20th, please make sure to follow all directions so that no cars are towed. More updates will follow as we have them.”
Town & Village reached out to the Department of Transportation who confirmed the project, but didn’t provide the exact dates and times of the work.
“Green paint installation is scheduled for the end of this week, weather permitting, and will be followed by installation of new thermoplastic markings,” a spokesperson for the department said. “We expect to complete the lanes in the next few weeks. Parking will be maintained along East 20th Street during implementation; drivers may continue to use the floating parking lane on the north side of the street.”
