BROOKLYN - Residents in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill can expect a lot of construction this week.

The city is repaving many roads throughout the two neighborhoods to repair damage done by this past winter season.

City officials say various streets will be closed to traffic and that residents should be prepared to take a different route.

Washington Park, Cumberland and South Oxford streets will be closed off during the day and Academy Park Place, South Elliot Place and Ashland Place will all be closed off during the evening this week.
