  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. This act shall only apply to a city with  a  population  of
one million or more.
  S  2.  a.    "Utility  interference  work" shall mean any work that is
deemed necessary or desirable  for  the  completion  of  a  public  work
project  that  requires  the  maintenance,  support, protection or other
accommodation of energy, telecommunications or other private  facilities
or structures not publicly owned which are located within, traversing or
adjacent  to the construction area of such project, whether above, below
or at ground  level,  including  the  removal,  relocation,  alteration,
replacement,  reconstruction or improvement of such facilities or struc-

  b. "New York city utility interference work project"  shall  mean  any
public  work  project  within  the  city  of New York for which the city
awards a contract which  includes  utility  interference  work  in  such
