The city will resurface a 20-block stretch along 21st Street in Long Island City.

One of the busiest and most bumpy thoroughfares in Long Island City will receive much needed repairs starting this week.

Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer announced on April 11 that 21st Street will be milled and resurfaced by the Department of Design and Construction (DDC). The project will begin at the intersection of 21st Street and Broadway and end at 47th Avenue and is expected to be completed sometime in the summer.

Crews will work from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and starting this week access to driveways and curbside parking may be restricted during those hours. The DDC will post “No Parking” signs in affected areas but deliveries to commercial and residential buildings will still be allowed. Bus stops may also be relocated during this time.

“The resurfacing of this 20-block stretch along 21st Street in Long Island City will make travel safer and smoother for everyone,” Van Bramer said. “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. I will monitor this project timeline closely and look forward to cutting the ribbon on this project.”

To request more information about the project call Community Construction Liaison Joanna Rojas at 516-534-7171 or visit the DDC website.
