Drivers will now have to pay to park on a stretch of Northern Boulevard.

The Department of Transportation installed 25 muni-meters last week along Northern Boulevard from Junction Boulevard to 112th Street.

The 17-block stretch of meters will allow for one-hour parking, according to a DOT spokesman.

The meters have been installed on blocks that have residential and commercial establishments.

Meters will run from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. on the westbound side of the street. On the eastbound side, they will start at 8 a.m. and end at 4 p.m., according to the DOT. Street cleaning regulations remain in effect for both sides of the street.

Not everyone is pleased with the meters.

Community Board 3’s District Manager Giovanna Reid said she will reach out to the DOT and see if some of these meters can be removed.

“We are not happy about this situation,” she said. “We are fighting this.”
