New York City’s Department of Transportation announced plans for paving and milling work set to take place in the coming week, both during the day and at night. The work will take place throughout the boroughs, and contractors will post notices in advance of the areas affected. If cars are not moved, they will be towed around the corner or to the nearest block without any construction. In the event of a change in schedule or if advance notices cannot be posted, contractors will inform affected residents verbally.
Residents who wish to lodge a complaint or report a pothole or other street defect can call the city’s central complaint hotline at 311 or the Staten Island Department of Transportation office at 212-839-2395. All work is subject to weather or emergency repair needs.

Wadsworth neighborhoods on Mallory Avenue, between Hylan Boulevard and Kramer Street, and Lamport Boulevard, between Hylan Boulevard and Kramer Street.

While the paving and milling work is likely to cause temporary delays and inconvenience, it is important for the city to maintain its roadways and infrastructure. Keeping streets in good, safe condition helps businesses and residents alike, making these upgrades a worthwhile investment of time and funds. As such, we encourage all those affected to remain vigilant and adjust their travel plans as needed to minimize disruption.
NYC DOT understands that construction can be an inconvenience but ensuring that our roads are safe and reliable is our top priority. All scheduled work has been coordinated and planned to have the least impact on residents and visitors alike. We advise everyone to plan ahead and keep this information in mind when traveling throughout the coming week.
The contractors have been instructed to work as efficiently as possible, to minimize the impact of the work on residents and commuters. Both the Department of Transportation and the contractors involved in this work appreciate the public’s cooperation in helping to complete the upgrades quickly and safely.
With these upgrades, the city is investing in its future, ensuring that the roads remain safe and reliable for years to come. This work also helps to create jobs, at a time when many in our city are struggling with employment. We remain committed to supporting these kinds of infrastructure investments, knowing that they will pay dividends both now and for years to come.
Maintaining our highways and roadways is essential for maintaining public safety and supporting economic growth over the long term. By investing in upgrades and maintenance work like this, we are investing in our city’s future. We encourage all residents and business owners to do their part to help support this initiative, and to prioritize safety as we complete this work in the coming week.
