Transit Sam, Week of Jan. 3, 2013


Happy 2013, Lower Manhattanites!
If you’re planning to take the Brooklyn Bridge, remember all Manhattan-bound lanes will be closed overnight11 p.m. to 6 a.m.Wednesday and Thursday. Also, the bridge’s Ramp F (which allows access to Robert F. Wagner Place from Exit 2 off FDR Drive South) will be closed all weekend from 11 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Monday.However, this will not affect access to the bridge.

In the Financial District, you’ll want to avoid John St. because the construction on a new hotel closes the street between Broadway and Nassau Sts. intermittently between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. weekdays. The intersection of Nassau and John Sts. is closed 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Starting Monday, construction taking place at the Fulton St. and Water St. intersection will close the west side of Fulton St. (near the Pearl St. intersection) all hours through Spring 2013. Construction on Fulton St. affects the following bus routes (which will be shifted towards Beekman St. for the next year starting Monday: M15, QM7, QM8, X8 and X14.

Construction on Chambers St. closes the street between Greenwich St. and Broadway and makes the street one-way westbound. The eastbound M22 bus has been re-routed to Warren Street until completion of this construction project.

In transit news, due to Hurricane Sandy, there continues to be no service on the 1 line between Rector St. and South Ferry.

  1. 的確前線員工對問題出現的原因會比老闆更清楚 但唔代表佢解決問題的方法會比老闆好 我咁睇 – 低層員工逗你份糧 係要處理一D operational task 有起事上嚟但求過骨就算 – 中層員工 (manager 類) 逗你份糧係幫你管住班人同埋做決定 佢應該為老闆提供一套 soitulon 去解決問題 – 老闆盤生意係自己嘅 自然需要睇得長遠 中層員工的 soitulon 係咪真係好 老闆應該一睇就清楚 我概括得出一個結論 老闆唔一定要叻過員工 但係一定要比員工心水清 唔好俾員工用一D過骨 soitulon 呃到你 我諗 uncle sam 所指嘅應該係呢樣
