NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The city Department of Transportation has many residents scratching their heads in the Briarwood section of Queens.
Just weeks after applying fresh paint to the road at Coolidge Avenue and 138th Street residents say city workers tore up the same road and repaved it.
"It seems like they went backwards," one resident said.
Workers painted markings on three blocks which included bike routes, arrows, crosswalks and stop lines before tearing up the street.
"The city's just not coordinated," another resident said. "Poor planning basically."
The Department of Transportation says the markings will be replaced after the resurfacing project is complete. The department is still looking into the costs but say they are minimal and part of their general striping budget.
Residents fear the city is wasting their tax dollars.
