It’s been a busy summer for the City’s Department of Transportation (DOT) and Department of Design and Construction (DDC), whose workers have been tearing up streets in multiple neighborhoods across the borough. Some jobs involve a mere resurfacing, while others entail more complex infrastructural upgrades and repairs.
In Park Slope, several side streets were tackled at the beginning of the summer, and a reworking of Prospect Park West was just completed:
In Boerum Hill, Bergen Street was torn apart and has only slowly begun to be put back together:
Ocean Parkway around the Ditmas Park and Midwood area also got some much-needed rehab to its cracked and patchy bike path:
While Court and Pacific Streets on the Downtown / Cobble Hill border saw some work to a lane or two–a tough location with heavy pedestrian and vehicle traffic:
We’ve previously covered Nostrand Avenue in Bed-Stuy, where two major projects are intertwined, but which finally seem to be coming along:
Major trench work on Kings Highway:
A repaving of Flatbush Avenue leaves the major thoroughfare without lanes for now:
And in the coming weeks, the DOT will continue on to Clinton Hill, East Flatbush, Gravesend, and Sheepshead Bay. A copy of their schedule is available here.
