Effective September 8, Street Cleaning/Alternate Side Parking (ASP) Regulations will be temporarily suspended in parts of Red Hook west of Hamilton Avenue in Brooklyn’s Community Board 6 for three to four weeks as the Department of Transportation (DOT) installs 1,400 signs with new, reduced street-cleaning regulations. This is the fourth and final phase of the project to change approximately 8,000 signs throughout the community.

In Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens and other areas west of Court Street, where the third phase of this sign replacement project started and is now complete, the 1,600 newly posted ASP regulations will become enforceable September 15, giving residents two weeks to adjust to the new rules. In many cases, residential street-cleaning restrictions are being reduced from three-hour intervals to just 90 minutes, and from twice a week to just once a week, to ease parking for local residents.

On commercial corridors, some streets will now be cleaned more often and regulations will be better coordinated to help some curbside parking for local shoppers. The new rules were established by the Department of Sanitation.

Street Cleaning Regulations will be suspended within the following borders starts September 8 and last an estimated three to four weeks:

North: Summit Street (included) from Imlay Street to Van Brunt Street; and Hamilton Avenue (included) from Van Brunt Street to Smith Street.

East: Smith Street (included) from Hamilton Avenue to the water

South/West: The water from Smith Street to Summit Street

The new regulations will take effect once sign changes are complete in the entire area. The changes do not affect 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. parking rules or meter regulations, or any other parking rules that are not Street Cleaning Regulations.

The DOT will give advance notification before enforcement resumes, and the public is encouraged to check the DOT’s website at and call 311 regularly.

On September 15, new ASP regulations will take effect within the following borders of Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill:

North: Atlantic Avenue (included) from Columbia Street to Court Street.

East: Court Street (not included) from Atlantic Avenue to Hamilton Avenue.

South: Hamilton Avenue (not included) from Court Street to Van Brunt Street.

West: Columbia Street (included) from Atlantic Avenue to Degraw Street; Degraw Street (included) from Columbia to Van Brunt Street; Van Brunt Street from Degraw to Hamilton
