The following “heads up” was provided by Judy Stanton of Brooklyn Heights Association:
We have just been handed a tentative Street milling schedule from the NYC Dept. of Transportation for work scheduled over the next two weeks, starting Thursday.
Currently, all the work is scheduled for nights between 9PM – 5 AM!
We urged the DOT to reschedule the work to daytime hours but the request was refused outright because their contract has already been signed. Nonetheless, Councilman Yassky is trying to get it changed.
The schedule indicated below is tentative since delays at any point would push subsequent routes to later dates, and conversely, early completion could result in an earlier start date for subsequent routes.
No Parking signs are to be posted 48 hours in advance of work and there would be no parking starting at 6:00 PM on a work night through 6:00 AM the following morning. DOT denied all previous requests (by BHA, CB#2, Yassky) to require contractors to give residents 7 days notice of no parking restrictions on streets to be milled. Parking will be permitted during the day subject to regular parking rules. Watch for the parking notices as work progresses.
The tentative schedule is as follows:
Court Street/Cadman Plaza West from Prospect Street to Joralemon Street: start 9:00 PM Thurs., 9/25; end 5:00 AM Sat., 9/27
Court Street from Joralemon Street to Atlantic Avenue: start 9:00 PM Mon., 9/29; end 5:00 AM Wed., 10/1
Remsen Street from Court Street to the Promenade: start 9:00 PM Wed., 10/1; end 5:00 AM Thurs., 10/2
Joralemon Street from Clinton Street to Hicks Street: start 9:00 PM Thurs., 10/2; end 5:00 AM Fri., 10/3
State Street from Clinton Street to Smith Street: start 9:00 PM Fri., 10/3; end 5:00 AM Sat., 10/4
PS We’ve asked the Mayor’s Film Office not to permit any film shoots anywhere near these streets until the work is finished.
We will report any changes to this plan as soon as possible.
