Paving the night away

City-contracted crews last night finished paving Avenue B from midblock between Fourth and Fifth down to Houston. 

EVG Milling & Paving Correspondent Stacie Joy captured what no one just yet is referring to as "the Social Event of the Fall."
The crews completed the work by midnight.

Will tonight B the night that the city finishes paving Avenue B?

OK, just to see this one out... the city is expected to finish paving the milled Avenue B this evening/overnight (a job started on Tuesday).

The new pavement ends randomly in the middle of B between Fourth Street and Fifth Street. 

Also, EV Arrow points out what you may have already noticed through the years — the Kate's Joint flag still flies high (sort of) at 58 Avenue B...

Thanks to the East Village Community Coalition for the pic!

This week in milling & paving with your host...

Crews working for the DOT milled Avenue B — from Houston to 14th Street — early this past week. 

Enjoy this fresh-milled look and feel while you can. 

According to the DOT website, workers are expected to start paving the roadway on Friday night...

Milling time for Avenue B moved to Monday-Tuesday

A quickie update on yesterday's post... the DOT has pushed the weekend milling planned for Avenue B to Monday and Tuesday evenings now. 

Also! Clinton Street between Houston and Delancey is also in for a milling, per the DOT website.

[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...
