UPPER EAST SIDE — Parking will be prohibited along certain neighborhood streets starting next week, officials said.

The city will be repaving streets on the east side of Manhattan from Aug. 29 through Oct. 12, and streets will have to be vacated to make way for the work.

During the project, streets will close to parking Mondays through Fridays, from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. "No parking" signs will be posted on streets to give drivers notice of upcoming closures, officials said. 

The following Upper East Side streets are expected to be affected:

► Fifth Avenue, between East 82nd and East 71st streets

► Second Avenue, between East 78th and 79th streets

► Third Avenue, between East 72nd and 86th streets

► East 72nd Street, between Fifth and York avenues

► East 74th Street, between Fifth Avenue and the FDR Drive

► East 79th Street, between Fifth and Second avenues

In addition to repaving the roads, the city's Department of Design and Construction and Department of Transportation will be repairing curbs to improve water runoff, according to the project's description.

The same work will also be done on roads further south, from East 14th to East 5th streets, from First Avenue to Avenue D.

City Councilman Dan Garodnick posted a full list of road closures on his Twitter account on Wednesday:
