This Is Why Henry Street in Cobble Hill Is Closed

A water line replacement job continues to keep cars off Henry Street  in Cobble Hill, from Atlantic Avenue to Kane Street.

According to the Cobble Hill Association, in order to safely replace it the water line, Natural Grid had to relocate an adjacent gas main currently too close to the water line for Department of Design and Construction to do the replacement work. This leads to concerns about the area's historic bluestone sidewalks, which National Grid is supposed to replace (but won't necessarily).

According to the Department of Design and Construction, the project will "install distribution water main extensions for new buildings" and "replace existing extensions, valves and hydrants." 

According to DOD. the project is supposed to wrap up by March 24.
