The city plans to shut down parts of the FDR Drive Sunday night to fill more potholes.

The Department of Transportation will close two southbound lanes beginning at 11 p.m.

The closures will take place between East 49th Street and the United Nations underpass near 42nd street.

Crews will work to repave the roadways in the hopes of re-opening the lanes at 5 a.m. Monday.

The DOT says it has already filled more than 84,000 potholes citywide.

To report a pothole, call 3-1-1.
