UPDATED 10/16/17 : New Winter Holiday Embargo (HE) review process will replace HE waiver requests (HE effective dates 11/15/17-1/2/18) . If permit application includes new permit requests to work through HE, then permittee will be automatically charged additional $135$ HE review fee which has to be paid in advance. The HE fee review payment does not guarantee permit request approval.  Deadline for submission of applications for work in the HE area is Tuesday October 31, 2017. Starting Nov 1, 2017 online applications for new work will be suspended.  You can view the details of the current Holiday Embargo on the DOT Website at: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dot/html/infrastructure/construction-embargoes.shtml#holiday
