A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to reducing noise caused by protective coverings placed over streets during construction or excavation projects.

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

                     Section One.  Paragraph six of subdivision b of section 19-121 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as last amended by local law 104 of 1993, is amended to read as follows:

                     19-121.  b. Conditions.  In addition to any other conditions which may be set forth in such permit or in the rules of the department, the following conditions shall apply:

                     6.  The street under such construction material or equipment shall be shielded by wooden planking, skids or other protective covering approved by the commissioner.  Such protective covering shall be firmly placed so that its edges correspond as closely as possible when connected to the adjacent street surface and so that the protective covering makes a minimum of noise when driven upon by vehicles.

                     §2.  This local law shall go into effect immediately after it is enacted into law.
