Verizon Work on Ave. Y to Take One Month

Verizon Replaces Cables on Avenue Y in Sheepshead Bay

The small fleet of Verizon trucks on Avenue Y around East 13th Street and East 14th Street will continue working in the area for as long as a month, according to one worker on the scene. The trucks first appeared a little over a week ago, and they are replacing a faulty telephone cable that stopped working. The Verizon employee said he expects the work to go on for another three or four weeks and residents in the area may experience inconsistencies in their phone service. Around 2 p.m. today, there were six vehicles spread around the two intersections. They were working in an open manhole near Avenue Y and East 14th Street, and set up a large blue tent and additional equipment near a manhole on East 13th Street (pictured above).
