Dozens of Brooklyn Blocks Scheduled for Resurfacing


New York City has included a number of streets throughout Boro Park, Midwood and Bensonhurst in this summer’s resurfacing program, including several that have been a steady source of complaint from local drivers since falling into disrepair over the past few years.

Councilman David Greenfield, who requested these repairs, announced the projects, saying that he will be working closely with the city’s Department of Transportation to ensure that repaving is completed as quickly as possible with few disruptions to the community.

Work began along 40th Street between 12th Avenue and Dahill Road in Boro Park several weeks ago, with milling of the surface now complete and repaving scheduled to begin in the next week. In addition, milling and resurfacing is planned or taking place at these locations:

  •  New Utrecht Avenue from 43rd Street to 61st Street
  •  38th Street between 10th Avenue and Dahill Road
  •  48th Street from 8th Avenue to New Utrecht Avenue
  •  Ditmas Avenue from 40th Street to Ocean Parkway
  •  17th Avenue from 50th to 54th Street
  •  65th Street from Bay Parkway to Avenue P
  •  21st Avenue from 53rd to 59th Street
  •  57th Street from 20th Avenue to the dead end east of 21st Avenue
  •  66th Street from New Utrecht Avenue to Bay Parkway
  •  77th Street from New Utrecht Avenue to Bay Parkway
  •  78th Street from 13th to 23rd Avenue

Residents are urged to be on the lookout for “No Parking” signs posted by DOT crews along blocks that are scheduled for work in the coming weeks. Cars parked along those streets will be relocated to surrounding blocks if necessary.

“I meet with the DOT each year to determine which streets should be prioritized for resurfacing and repairs. I am thrilled that so many important neighborhood streets have been targeted for repairs in the coming weeks,” Greenfield said.
