Pre-Construction Work Begins on High Line's Southern End

  Earlier this month, the City's team of contractors began pre-construction work on the southern end of the High Line, the first section to be converted into public open space. The contractors began by installing protective fencing around the decorative railings on the High Line's southern end at Gansevoort Street. The fencing is intended to protect and preserve the High Line's iconic steel railings during the first phase of construction. Additional pre-construction work involves removal and storage of material and debris currently on the Line. Phase I of construction (site preparation on Gansevoort to 20th Streets) is officially set to begin on April 10, with a Groundbreaking ceremony.
