The Department of Transportation (DOT) has planned the milling of selected streets in Clinton Hill. Weather permitting, the milling is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, August 16, and expected to conclude on Friday, August 18. Streets affected are Willoughby Avenue, from Washington Park to Hall Street, and Clermont Avenue, from Park Avenue to Atlantic Avenue.

Residents should be aware that vehicles left on these streets, when work is ready to be performed, will be relocated generally within three blocks. Thus the DOT encourages owners of relocated vehicles to first walk around the neighborhood to look for their cars. Residents who are unable to locate their vehicle may call  718- 222-7285 to learn where it was towed to.

Milling, which strips the top layer of asphalt from the streets, is widely used for pavement recycling, where the pavement is removed and ground up to be used as the aggregate in new pavement; it is usually done in preparation for paving. The milling process is noisy and may cause discomfort in the affected neighborhood for several days. Ideally, much of the work is done at night in order to minimize disruptions to traffic.

Streets are generally repaved one or two weeks after they are milled.
