A major throughway between Astoria and Long Island City will be fully resurfaced beginning this week.
Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer announced today that the stretch of 21st Street between Broadway and 47th Avenue would be completely milled and resurfaced to create a safer and smoother trip along the 20-block stretch.
“I have called on the Department of Transportation to make these crucial road improvements for years, and I am happy that work is set to begin this week to fix potholes and uneven driving conditions that make travel dangerous for cyclists and motorists,” Van Bramer said in a statement. “I will monitor this project timeline closely and look forward to cutting the ribbon on this project.”
The repaving will begin at the intersection of Broadway and 21st Street this week and work towards Long Island City.
