The Times Square Transformation is a three-phase capital project that began in 2012 and is currently scheduled to be completed by December 2016. Each phase of construction includes a range of complex operations: utility work by Con Edison, updates to city infrastructure, the installation of new infrastructure to facilitate events, and surface work that will cap off the renovation and turn much of "the bowtie" into a beautiful piazza.
