An updated schedule has been released by the city Department of Transportation, for their planned repaving of Downtown Brooklyn, Fort Greene and DUMBO streets over weeknights this week.

The full paving schedule is as follows:

Monday, August 5

  • Fulton Street, from Flatbush Avenue to Hanson Place

Tuesday, August 6

  • Fulton Street, from Flatbush Avenue to Hanson Place
  • Old Fulton Street, from Front Street to the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway
  • Jay Street, from the former end of Myrtle Avenue (Metrotech) to Tillary Street

Wednesday, August 7

  • Jay Street, from Tillary Street to John Street

Thursday, August 8

  • Jay Street, from Tillary Street to John Street

The paving schedule has been changed due to newly scheduled filming for HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” in and around the Fulton Ferry area, according to Community Board 2.

Paving will only occur at night, but drivers beware: cars left on the streets from August 5 to 8 will be “relocated [to] generally, within three blocks” of your original parking space.

“DOT encourages owners of relocated vehicles to first walk around the neighborhood. If owners are not able to locate their vehicle, they may telephone (718) 222-7285 to learn where it was towed to.”
