Crews will work to install a water fountain at the 71st Avenue Plaza this week.

As construction at the 71st Avenue Plaza in Ridgewood winds down, NYC Department of Design and Construction (DDC) crews will be working in the area this week to prepare for the installation of a water fountain, the agency announced.

Starting on Tuesday, Sept. 5, and lasting until Friday, Sept. 8, DDC will be setting up concrete for sidewalk and preparing for the water fountain installation at the pedestrian plaza, according to the construction notice DDC sent to Community Board 5 (CB 5).

The work will take place on the 71st Avenue Plaza, located between 71st and Myrtle avenues, between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. However, due to unforeseen field and weather conditions, work dates, locations and times may need to be changed.

The plaza project — which will transform the former temporary pedestrian plaza on the underutilized slip road between Stephen Street and Myrtle Avenue — will add 3,000 square feet of open public space, and is expected to be complete this month.

“No Parking” signs will be posted 72 hours prior to the temporary elimination of street parking in conjunction with this construction.

For more information about this project, reach out to the project’s Community Construction Liaison Christopher Fields at 718-366-0910 or through email at 71plazaccl[@]gmail.com.

During the months-long construction period, many local businesses around the site were suffering ill affects due to torn up sidewalks which prevented customers from accessing the shops, and sporadic water service shutdowns.
