NEW YORK — It's the busiest time of the year again for crews with the Department of Transportation.

There are more than 6,000 miles of streets in New York City.

Mayor Bill de blasio has added an additional $242 million for road resurfacing in all Five Boroughs. The city reports its the most work in 25 years.

Each weeknight, about a dozen crews are working across the city.

They first mill the road which involves ripping up the old road bed.

Neighbors noticed the noise and the amount of time it takes to come back and resurface it.

NYC DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg says they wait for utility companies to inspect the road and sign off on the conditions to prevent any issues.
