Greenfield says repaving best done in summer
The streets of Borough Park aren’t paved with gold, but they definitely are paved.
Councilmember David G. Greenfield, who represents the neighborhood, recently announced that the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) has finished repaving roadways Borough Park and Midwood as part of a summer project.
Greenfield (D-Borough Park-Midwood-Bensonhurst), who said he provided funding for the repaving, noted that DOT did much of the work during the summer months when schools are closed and when many people were away on vacation.
The summer schedule meant that the repaving caused the least possible inconvenience for drivers, Greenfield said.
To date, DOT has repaved 100 blocks in his council district, according to Greenfield’s office.
More streets in his district have been repaved than in any other council district in the city, Greenfield said.
“Smooth roads are a critical quality of life issue. That’s why I secured extra money in the New York City budget to ensure that roads in our community are fixed. My many thanks to the Department of Transportation for taking my priorities into consideration and fixing the streets in the summer instead of the rest of the year,” Greenfield said in a statement.
Here is a list of streets that were repaved in Greenfield’s district: 18th Avenue between 46th Street and 61st Street; 14th Avenue between 44th Street and 61st Street; 23rd Avenue between Ave M and 61st Street; 60th Street between 14th Avenue and 24th Avenue; 57th Street between Fort Hamilton Parkway and 16th Avenue; Fort Hamilton Parkway between 49th Street and 61st Street; 52nd Street between Eighth Avenue and Dahill Road; Coney Island Avenue between Avenue P and Avenue R; East Ninth Street between Avenue P and Avenue V; East 18th Street between Avenue I and Avenue O; Ryder Avenue between McDonald Avenue and Ocean Parkway; Ocean Avenue between Foster Avenue and Avenue K; and Kings Highway between Ocean Avenue and Ocean Parkway.
