••• The Lower Manhattan Construction Command Center has introduced a Downtown Projects and Streetworks Map: “The Projects and Streetworks Map is being upgraded in three phases. Phase I debuted March 11th, combining multiple LMCCC databases into Google Maps or Google Earth. Project sites are “clickable,” revealing basic information and linking to Project Updates on the website for more details. It also includes a calendar that users can click through for status updates, changing work zones, and future work (as currently scheduled). Phase II was launched in late March, and includes 4-D buildings with a time slider (the “fourth dimension” being time). This allows users to view multiple construction sites in 4-D as the work occurred at specific points in time. This upgrade also includes selectable layers of information, including project categories, status, details within the map, and City DOT traffic cameras at multiple locations. The Phase III upgrades, expected to launch in early April, will include detailed street-impact information. This will visually represent the amount of road-work lanes being occupied. A site photo library and dedicated search function will be included to easily find specific sites.”
