National Grid Halts North Brooklyn Pipeline Construction April 06 2020, 0 Comments

The Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported on March 27, 2020 in its article, "Coronavirus: National Grid halts North Brooklyn Pipeline construction after outcry":

Construction on National Grid's North Brooklyn Pipeline was halted on Thursday afternoon after residents, activists and elected officials complained that the utility company was endangering its employees by sending them to work during the coronavirus pandemic.

Despite the city and state's orders for residents to stay at home as much as possible, and aggressive measures put in place to encourage social distancing, work on the controversial project had proceeded with employees in close contact, according to witnesses.
