New Yorkers now have a website they can search to find out street closures from planned construction, street fairs, parades and other traffic disruptions that pop up throughout the city.
Mayor Bloomberg and City Council Christine Quinn announced NYC Street Closures on Tuesday, which pulls together permit information and allows users to search by date and location.
Users can also sort by street, borough, purpose and duration of the closure.
“This tool will offer relief for New Yorkers by showing exactly which streets are closed on any given date, at any time,” Quinn said in a statement.
Officials said information about film shoots, park events and parking regulations will be added to the data on the map later this year.
