By Council Member Cohen

 

A Local Law to amend the New York city building code, in relation to notice requirements for construction near bridges and tunnels

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Section BC 3301 of the New York city building code is amended by adding a new section 3301.14 to read as follows:

3301.14 Notification requirements to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the New York City Department of Transportation. Whenever a construction or demolition project requiring a work permit classified in section 28-105.2 as either a new building permit or an alteration permit required to meet new building requirements, as set forth in section 28-101.4.5, is proposed within 100 feet (30 480 mm) of any bridge or tunnel under the jurisdiction of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey or the New York City Department of Transportation, the contractor or applicant for construction shall notify such authority having jurisdiction. Such contractor or applicant shall notify the department that such notice has been made to the authority having jurisdiction prior to commencement of any such permitted activity. The issuance of any permit or approval by the department shall not relieve the applicant of the obligation to comply with any approval or permitting requirements of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey or the New York City Department of Transportation.

 

§ 2. This local law takes effect 90 days after it becomes law, except that the commissioner of buildings may take such measures as are necessary for its implementation, including the promulgation of rules, before such date.
