NY State Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) praised National Grid for agreeing to his request to cease all planned work along Avenue M between East 3rd and Ocean Parkway until after the upcoming Yomim Tovim.
“Most people in our community have noticed the disruption on our streets due to work by National Grid,” said Hikind. “Of course, we all recognize that this work is absolutely necessary but it makes life a little more difficult. Consequently, I discussed the situation with National Grid and they were amenable.
“No further planned work will occur from right before this coming Shabbos until after Simchas Torah. I want to thank National Grid for being sensitive to our community’s needs.”
