The Department of Transportation (DOT) is planning to resurface 37th Ave between 69th Street and Junction Blvd next month, according to a DOT spokesman.
The announcement comes shortly just after Mayor Bill de Blasio and Transportation Commissioner Polly Trottenberg announced that they would be spending an additional $242 million on road repaving over the course of the next two years.
The DOT is adding funds, in part, due to deterioration of the roads this past winter.
The repaving is expected to take less than a month to complete.
Once 37th Avenue is repaved it will become a “protected street,” whereby utility companies are not allowed to drill into the street or do underground work unless it’s an emergency for 5 years.
