On Tuesday morning, many Crown Heights residents were surprised to see several heavy construction trucks parked on Kingston Avenue and on Eastern Parkway, just days ahead of the International Kinus Hashluchim.
The truck are there to begin much-needed road repairs at the intersection of Eastern Parkway and Kingston Ave, Crown Heights’ busiest thoroughfare.
Anash.org has learned that the road work will be halted for a number of days due to the arrival of thousands of guests to Crown Height for the annual conference of shluchim.
Rabbi Yaacov Behrman, director of Jewish Future Alliance, told Anash.org that he has a commitment that no work will be done during the Kinus Hashluchim, starting Wednesday.
