[Updated] It's milling time for Avenue B

Signs are now posted along Avenue B ... noting (warning?) that DOT contractors will be milling — "the process of grinding off the top layer of asphalt or surface of a roadway" from Houston to 14th Street.

Signs note (warn?) that the work will occur from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. tonight and tomorrow. 

The city milled Avenue C in early June. That roadway stayed in a fillings-rattling state until late July. Hopefully, Avenue B can be repaved more quickly than 7 weeks.

Thanks to Dave on 7th for the pic!

Updated 11:30 a.m.

Speaking of Dave on 7th... he notes that the milling machine lurks nearby...
Updated 10/16 

The milling has been moved back to Monday and Tuesday... also, Clinton Street between Houston and Delancey is also in for a milling...

That was considerate of them to do it when we'll all be sleeping. It appears the shacks will remain up and they won't repave underneath ?

meanwhile, the sidewalk sinkholes on E 6th St and down on Mercer remain wide open months now after the hurricane. I guess the residents enjoy having to walk out into the street all the time.

There’s a nice sized sink hole forming on Avenue C between 12th and 11th St. west side.
