BROOKLYN HEIGHTS — A Brooklyn Heights Citi Bike station has been temporarily removed from its Clark and Henry Streets location, officials confirmed.

Citi Bike tweeted that the station was removed due to “last minute Con Ed work.”

“We will post info on re-installation when we know more,” according to the tweet on Wednesday.

The pavement around a manhole next to the bike station is being re-graded, Allan Drury, a spokesman for Con Edison, said in an email.

Con Ed's permit from the city's Department of Transportation requires "an unobstructed" 11-foot lane of traffic so the company requested the bike station's removal, Drury said. 

The work began Wednesday and is expected to finish within the day. The pavement then has to "cure" for 24 hours, after which the bike station could return, he said. 

Re-installations are usually done very soon after repair work has been completed, Citi Bike spokeswoman Dani Simons told DNAinfo New York.

“Citibikes no more at Clark St station,” Teresa Genaro tweeted Wednesday, Brooklyn Heights Blog first reported.
